In Italy we are so in love with spaghetti that practically any colander ends up being called a colander. Our grandmothers have so many of them that they end up becoming vegetable baskets, hanging decorations, fruit bowls and even yarn ball holders.
The Italia collection was born from the desire to tell a story: that of a country that knows how to become a home for everyone and has done so for centuries. A vitrified product like ceramics resists time and becomes a witness to cultures and customs. Each object is studied on the basis of tradition and reinterpreted with a minimalist language that makes it contemporary.
Modelled on the potter’s wheel, the earth shows itself under a layer of crystalline glaze, which allows us to appreciate the natural variations of the material. The earths are all different and interact differently with the glazes. Variations in texture, lustre and shade are considered elements of the object’s personality.

After years spent designing and cooking, with a degree in architecture and many cooking courses, Giulia realized that her happiness lay somewhere between her passion for design and her passion for food, so in 2021 she decided to leave her desk to dedicate herself to ceramics and fully pursue her great passions.
Thus Giulia Valentino ceramics was born, a project whose mission is to bring her stories, made not of words but of earth, patiently treated and worked by hand, into modern homes. Stories from the past, future prospects, testimonies of travel, encounters and knowledge.
Awareness of the durability of ceramic artifacts generates a responsibility that the craftsman must accept and elaborate, slowly, to create beauty capable of communicating, so quality is one of the major values underlying this small, well-kept project.
