Italia Consultant is committed to support and propagate the Italian lifestyle through quality Italian products. We believe that people’s lives and the world can improve from the present condition by adopting an Italian lifestyle, in the better sense of the word. An Italian lifestyle is a complex and healthy combination of aesthetics, innovation, pride in doing our job “as well as God demands” (as we say here), enjoyment of the fine but simple things of life, enjoyment of other people’s company.  All this enriches the experience of life.

In this, we are committed to support the smaller and traditional quality enterprises of Italy which offer a unique combination of skilled craftmanship, new ideas and technological innovation. Italia Consultant prefers to source its suppliers and manufacturers among those who comply with Italian and EU labour, environmental and fiscal laws and regulations.

Italia Consultant strives to make a small impact on the environnment and is proud to be a virtually paperless operation. Our CO2 emissions are estimated to be below 1 Ton/month.
