The local economy of the inhabitants of Casalvieri was traditionally based on agriculture. However, the population grew steadily until there was not enough work or food to sustain many of the poorer families.

Consequently in the  1930’s many left their home town in search of a new life overseas.  Following the devastation of the Second World War there was a second wave of emigration.




Casalvieri is known for its manufacture of balloons. A young man named Angelo Rocco emigrated at a young age to Marseille in France, where he worked with his brother-in-law manufacturing handmade balloons. In 1902 he returned to his  place of birth and set up his own business. The  business grew and grew and went on to export balloons all over the world.  The company now trades under the name of Gemar.
