Fashion is the style of
the present time

SINCE 1995

Club Voltaire was founded in 1995 by a business idea of Alberto and Cristina Melani, who – through a long experience in manufacturing women’s clothing – created the Company in Pistoia. The Company has always lived as a laboratory of ideas and projects.


The Melani family had owned an atelier in Pistoia since the early 1900s, but it was in 1954 that Maria Melani (mother of the current owner) transformed her tailoring business into a larger company, with the Melania brand.

It is the period of the dolce vita and the legendary sixties and many protagonists of Via Veneto and Via Tornabuoni, the Rive Gauche and New Bond Street wear Melania garments.



The collections of the brand are characterized for rigorous lines, clean cuts and refined fabrics, offering a modern woman, chic and sophisticated, meanwhile humorous and imaginative, always and anyway bound to the contemporary.

The Club Voltaire updates the business background of joining the formula of prêt à porter with stylistic research that suggests collections for a woman of refined and elegant lines, with a careful research of fabrics and details.
