Gifts from Italy

The UK has had a long and affectionate relationship with Italy. From Shakespeare to Lord Byron, and from Samuel Johnson to DH Lawrence, English literature is full of glowing references to the 'Bel Paese'. Italy was one of the main destinations on 'The Grand Tour', which was an extremely popular 'Rite of Passage' among young members of the British aristocracy in the late 17th century. This familiarity with Italy continued on into the 20th century when Italy became one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe for the British. As a result, Italian art and culture, Italian food and Italian fashion have remained very popular in the United Kingdom. From our online shop based in the 'Mezzogiorno' of Italy, we offer a wide range of handmade gifts available for delivery to the UK.

"I stood in Venice, on the Bridge of Sighs; A palace and a prison on each hand; I saw from out the wave of her structure’s rise As from the stroke of the enchanter’s wand: A thousand years their cloudy wings expand Around me, and a dying Glory smiles O’er the far times, when many a subject land Look’d to the winged Lion’s marble pines, Where Venice sate in state, throned on her hundred isles."
Lord Byron
