Luxury homes made in Italy

The origins of Italian craftsmanship

In the Middle Ages there was the word “artist” but not the word craftsman. Despite this, however, that of the craftsman was a most important figure. This was because he was considered a person who excelled in his craft, in his art. We can say that the craftsman was considered a true artist, and his social relevance was very high.

After the year 1000, craft activities began to emerge in Italy as northern and central cities founded municipalities.

Artisans were united in associations so that they could protect their interests and participate in municipal political life. Since then, Italian craftsmanship has become a heritage of manual knowledge passed down from generation to generation. Italian tailors, goldsmiths, blacksmiths, restorers, carpenters, shoemakers, glassmakers, and luthiers are prized for their gifts of ingenuity and craftsmanship. A tradition of inestimable value. Craftsmanship is a trademark that every nation should never give up.

Prestigious product

For a product to be classified as “made in Italy,” it must have been designed, conceived and designed in Italy, even if it is industrially produced elsewhere.

“Made in Italy” expresses the excellence of Italian creativity and craftsmanship. Made in Italy is a certainty, which is why the world feels it can trust an all-Italian product.

The prestige is due to high quality materials, refined style, innovation, attention to detail and durability. The expression “made in Italy” thus signals the Italian origin of an industrial or artisanal product intended for both international and Italian markets.
