In 1884, Giovanni Landini founded a company to produce agricultural tractors to aid in the practice of farming. Before Giovanni could produce his first tractor prototype, he passed away in 1924. Carrying on the family business, Giovanni's sons continued the tractor project and in 1925 they produced the first authentic Italian tractor, a 30 horse-power product. The Landini tractor company is still manufacturing high quality agricultural equipment today and is headquartered in Fabbrico, Italy.
