The founder of Xavian, Roberto Barletta, was born in Turin, Northern Italy in a family with roots in Southern Italy. The family comes from the so called area “Magna Grecia”: these were the places where, among others, Archimédes, Empedokles, Pythagoras, Parmenides, Enrico Caruso, and Gesualdo da Venosa lived.
Roberto Barletta grew up with his grandmother in a family of musicians. His childhood was enriched by the sound of violin, guitar and singing. The childhood deeply influenced the soul of Roberto. In 1984 his interest in music and technology brought him to “play” with loudspeakers and reproduction of music in home environment.
It`s almost 20 years since Roberto personally assembled each speaker, personally designed each crossover and personally supervised the quality controls. These years Xavian has grown, the number of models has increased, its products have become available in several countries worldwide and collected many awards from the different parts of the world. Still today Roberto Barletta personally checks the finishes and overall quality controls.
