Pyrotecnico has produced the Ohio River Sternwheel Festival Fireworks, each year better than the last.
Tradition, creativity, innovation and technology are the ingredients that have set Pyrotechnico apart from other firework manufacturers for years. The tradition began in 1889 when Constantino Vitale founded the Vitale Fireworks Manufacturing Company in a small village near Naples, Italy. The company was later moved to the United States and incorporated in New Castle, Pennsylvania – which would later become the “Firework Capital of America.”
Today, the century old family tradition has been refined with technological advancements and a new generation of ideas. Renamed Pyrotechnico, the company is run by the fourth generation of the Vitale family.
