FinestItalian.com was born with a definite mission: to promote Italian-born artists who now live in America and whose work has its roots in the techniques and traditions of the mother country. We achieve this goal by providing these artists and artisans with an electronic storefront on which they can exhibit and sell their work, by facilitating inter-artist communication and synergies, and by providing you, the public, with information and tools to enable you to easily view the artists’ work and to select those ‘must-have’ items.
The Finest Italian:
Paintings; Ceramics; Jewelry; Pottery; Photography; Home Decor; and Much More!
Both established and emerging artisan/artists will benefit from exposure on finestItalian.com, and of course the eventual buyer benefits by having an additional efficient and secure channel for his or her acquisitions.
In the background there is a another purpose, one that stems from our love for, and pride in, our country of origin. We are brought by this love and pride to a desire to promote its culture and its art whenever possible, because we believe that the world can only become a better and more beautiful place by an increased acceptance of Italian artistic ideals and Italian lifestyle. To this end we make a donation to the Italian Educational Institute, a non-profit organization based in Atherton, California, each time a sale is made. The reason for being of the Italian Educational Institute is to promote the increased diffusion of Italian language and culture in California.
Having stated our policy of concentrating on Italian-born artists practicing their craft in America, we hasten to add that it is not our intention to enforce this rule absolutely and dogmatically. Should we run across opportunities to bring you exceptional work directly from Italy we will do so. And if an American-resident artisan has preserved intact his artisan traditions, he will not be excluded just because he may be a generation or two removed from the mother country. Thus, we bring you ITALY as an idea and a lifestyle, rather than as a purely geographical construct.
