La Martina's founder Lando Simonetti wins the «Baku Moritz Polo Award 2019»
At the gala night at the Badrutt's Palace hotel on Saturday evening, 26th January 2019, the «Baku Moritz Polo Award», that recognises outstanding achievements in the field of polo sports, was awarded for the second time. This year's award went to Lando Simonetti, founder and owner of the La Martina brand. Since its creation in 1985, La Martina has been supporting the sport of polo and propagating its values. The company, having started in boots and saddles, soon expanded; it created a lifestyle collection and advanced its technological prowess. Today, La Martina warrants the quality required in this demanding sport.
