Bringing history to life.

We are fourth generation art makers.

We are artists, producers, publishers and rights experts with our headquarters alongside the Lake of Lugano in Switzerland. We are proudly in Ticino, the Italian speaking part of Switzerland.

We provide content to consumers, architects, designers, retailers, film producers and distributors worldwide. Our speciality is vintage imagery, art and film.

Our art business lineage was started by Jack Weedn in California in 1954 when he began a small aerial photography business in California (between acting and singing gigs). In 1959, his wife, Flavia Weedn began her lifelong career in painting and writing. Flavia and Jack began the art selling and publishing/gallery business on PCH in Laguna Beach and at the Disneyland Hotel in 1960's. Flavia's mother, Sylvia Money was a doll maker who along with her son, Bill Register, a craftsman by trade joined in the extended family business. Flavia painted, Sylvia made dolls, Bill made wooden cutouts of the art and Jack Weedn sold and licensed the rights. That sparked a business publishing many millions of cards and books in many languages. The Flavia Company became Archivea in 2009.

This art and film business has continued with Jack's son, Rick Weedn joining his father in 1978 and Miguel Weedn, Rick's son joining his father in 2022. Rick and his sister Lisa Weedn grew the business from 1980 through 2008.

In 2009, Archivea GmbH of Zug, Switzerland purchased the Flavia Weedn archive and continues today from its new headquarters in Lugano, Switzerland.

All publishing operations moved from Santa Barbara, California to Lugano, Switzerland in January of 2023.

We now serve The Getty Museum, The New York Public Library, Claudio Bravo Collection, The Ford Motor Company, The Henry Ford Museums, The Vintage Arte Institute and the Flavia archive among many others.

We love history and art and pride ourselves in merging the two. Our specialty is visual story telling, archival materials and digital technologies in the production of still imagery and film. Vintage posters, motorsport, aviation, architecture, graphic design, illustration, industrial design plus historical authenticity are our passions.

We are co-owners of The Flavia Weedn and Claudio Bravo archives and sponsors of the Vintage Arte Institute.
