Cereria Terenzi was established 40 years ago in Cattolica, in a space of 16sqm, upon the enthusiasm of its founder, Evelino Terenzi, who, through innovation, continued a family tradition: his father, Guglielmo, participated in the foundation of a waxworks that produced devotional and paschal candles for churches. Initially, Evelino worked with his father and mother, Luigia, but later found his own interest: that of manufacturing birthday candles. His first successes can also be attributed to the invention of a special kind of wax which, for the first time ever, made candles much more resistant to bumps, but above all to the idea of producing candles that could be used with food without causing any health risks. At this point, it was decided to use food-grade paraffin wax, thus increasing beyond measure the safety levels of candles. An innovative move, at a time when attention to environmental and health issues was nowhere near what it is today. From that moment onwards, the company grew until becoming the main waxworks in Italy and one of the most important in Europe, offering work to scores of people. Alongside birthday candles, other candle products such as smoke-eliminators, mosquito repellent, aromatherapy, interior home decoration, but also oil lamps, candelabras, massage candles have been developed. Now, at the helm of the company, in San Giovanni in Marignano, just a few kilometers from Cattolica, are Evelino’s children, Paolo and Tiziana, who perpetuate the founder’s original spirit of profound respect for this antique and noble craft whose origins disappear from sight into the depths of time.
