ATLANTA–Abbiamo tutto debuted a new line of Italian-made ceramics at the Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market here.
After several years of collaboration, Abbiamo tutto has become the U.S. sales and distribution representative for Spigarelli Ceramiche, an Italian manufacturer of ceramic and porcelain tabletop and home decor items.
Spigarelli is one of about a dozen different manufacturers that Abbiamo tutto works with to build its made-in-Italy collection. The two recently decided to join forces, according to Donna Marie Territo, founder and president of Abbiamo tutto. “The foundation of our company is based solely on promoting Italian craftsmanship,” she said. “By representing Spigarelli, we believe this is a perfect venture and opportunity for both companies to promote Italian manufacturing in the U.S.”
Abbiamo tutto will continue to operate separately in designing and importing items from various Italian suppliers, and has created a division dedicated to the Spigarelli product line. Spigarelli Ceramiche focuses on transferware. Its collections include place settings of dinnerware, herbal tea accessories, flatware, canisters, bakeware and serveware.
“We look forward to showcasing this aspect of Spigarelli manufacturing and the high standards of craftsmanship that can only be found in Italy,” said Territo. “The Spigarelli family is very proud of the fact that their entire operation, start to finish is Italian. The machinery, artists, facility, tutto (everything) is made entirely in Italy.”
