Oak Lawn, Illinois


In the early 1900's, the first phase of what would become the oldest accordion company in the United States opened for business on Taylor Street in Chicago, Illinois. After a few years, Demo Piatanesi and his two brothers, Finau and Bramante joined Luigi Giuletti and others to relocate the newly named ITALO-AMERICAN ACCORDION COMPANY to 51st and Kedzie, on the southwest side of Chicago.

In its prime, the accordion company manufactured over 25 accordions a week, and quickly gained a reputation all over the Midwest for it's top quality accordions and fine craftsmanship. Originators of the POLYTONE, POLYTONEL, ITALO-TONE, POLKAMASTER, POLKA-TONE, POLKA-KING, CONCERTMASTER, GLORIA, and NEW AGE models, the ITALO-AMERICAN ACCORDION COMPANY provided accordions for professionals and students, alike. Famous accordionists through the times have played Italo-American models such as: Pietro and Guido Diero, Andy Rizzo, Frank Salerno, Sam Porfirio, Johnny Vadnal, and Reno Tondelli, just to name a few.
