What is internoitaliano, winner of the Design category
Publisher of objects, accessories and furnishing elements internoitaliano was born with the vocation of bringing the typically Italian design and technical quality of workmanship to the international scene. Giulio Iacchetti is its ’ creative soul, as well as art director. Internoitaliano's ambition is to restore ' normality to design ' : its products are designed to be lasting and become part of everyday life with personality and discretion at the same time.
It is therefore a system of production and sale of furnishing objects inspired by the Italian way of living, founded in 2012 by Giulio Iacchetti and Silvia Cortese which in 2019 was acquired by My Home Collection, a company of the Alivar group. The heart of the brand is made up of a production fabric made up of a network of artisan workshops and manufacturing companies that embody the excellence of the Italian ability to create products of the highest quality. Internoitaliano is therefore a real ‘widespread factory’ throughout the Italian territory.
