Our history

More than 100 years of passion

The beginning of the business dates back to 1885, when Andrea Gamba (great-grandfather of the current owner Michele Donati) took over the shop from the Bianchi-Chiusi company, opening a bookshop-stationery shop which over the decades would assume ever greater prestige and popularity.

After more than 100 years in Piazza Grande in Locarno, Cartoleria Donati SA has moved to Losone and is ready to welcome you and advise you professionally.

As per tradition, we deal with the sale of office supplies, for schools and for individuals.
