This wall lamp is in all probability Italian, not only because this lamp was acquired in Italy some years ago and it got all the Italian looks, but also because of the wiring.
The socket of this lamp was made by the A.A.G. Stucchi company from the north of Italy, some 50 km (31 miles) from the capital of all Italian lights: Milan.
A.A.G. Stucchi was founded in 1944 and was first named Electra. In 1950 the name changed into A.A.G. Stucchi. The company’s founding members are Aristide, Arturo and Giuseppe Stucchi. A.A.G. Stucchi is located in the city ofy. Also Stilux and Reggiani used electric parts of A.A.G. Stuchi for many lamps.
