Cesare Barontini, who was in charge of the Barontini company since 1955, helped his cousin Ilio Barontini to establish a pipe production of his own.

Ilio started to produce a machine-made series pipes at the low to mid price points. 80% of the pipes went to foreign countries, the bulk being produced as various private label brands. Some of his own lines, such as "De Luxe", "Etna" or "Vesuvio" gained a certain popularity.

Ilio Barontini pipes offer a wood quality that is somewhat unique in this price category.

There are unconfirmed reports that the brand has since been absorbed by Cesare Barontini or perhaps Savinelli.
