Maurizio Distefano Licensing tops Licence Global rankings
Maurizio Distefano Licensing, which manages licensing for a number of major brands in the Italian market, has been placed at the top of the License Global magazine agent rankings for 2022 in the Italian market
The recently announced License Global rankings not only place MDL as the number one agency in Italy.
MDL was also placed second in Europe and 37th worldwide.
MDL’s success is underlined by its ability to successfully manage a portfolio of properties across a wide variety of brand areas.
It has of course long enjoyed enormous success representing hit animated series like Bing, Bluey, ALVINNN!!! And the Chipmunks, Gigantosaurus and Masha and the Bear.
However, it has had a great response to its growing portfolio of fashion brands, like young Italian stylist Filippo Laterza and the PREMOLI + DI BELLA brand inspired by the work of creative directors Giovanni Premoli and Dario Di Bella.
Iconic cultural brands like LIFE, Asterix, ISA (International Space Archives) and La Gazzetta dello Sport are also managed by MDL in Italy as are some of the most famous bands and musical artists in history: Motorhead, Backstreet Boys, Whitney Huston, David Bowie, The Police, Pink Floyd, to name only a few. MDL also represents the incredibly successful teen influencer and content creator Charlotte M.
Reinforcing the strong reputation MDL enjoys, recent additions to its portfolio include comic book legend Corto Maltese.
Maurizio Distefano says, “It’s been a tough twelve months for the licensing industry but with hard work and attention to detail we have not only continued offering a first-class service to our valuable existing clients but we have also enriched our portfolio with some popular and iconic names. We’re delighted that this hard work has allowed us to retain our place among Europe’s elite.”
