Like all dreams come true, Helan sprang from a natural vocation that came from a philosophy of life long before it was a choice of production.
It was in 1976 that the young university researcher Elisa Bottini Massa decided to take the great leap from an academic career to one of a private entrepreneur together with her husband Enzo Moncalvo and, at present, their three children Malva, Ludovico and Marco.
OLMO (Ulmus campestris) is the symbol that represents HELAN.
The Elm is a great, solid tree, rich in herbal properties and full of symbolism: strength, resistance to climatic adversities and far-reaching longevity as well as elegance and prominence…a real force of nature!
1976: this is the Helan brand
Its name is an acronym made with the words:
HEL-IOS (sun) AN- IMUS(soul, spirit)
Thus, Sun-filled Soul, to signify that the company’s spirit must be clear, warm and full of energy like the sun, source of all life.
