HistoryEdit

The Valdivieso advertising sign was built in 1955 by the Luminosos Parragué company.[6] General manager Claudio Parragué stated:

The companies wanted their products to portray a sort of 'magic.' That's why we used a mechanical electromagnetic system that, in time, ended up transforming the champagne bottle into a classic icon.
