Concept

Presented in 1988, the Italia model marked the start of collaboration with Antonio Citterio, who was then to take over as art director and designer for the entire Collection. Right from its debut, Italia embraced the aesthetics and technical solutions typical of professional kitchens, bringing their functions and typical methods into the home years before this became a widespread trend: the characteristic handle, the prevailing use of steel, deeper worktops fitted with large cast iron hobs and double sinks, suspended hoods, and the iconic double-island layout. While staying loyal to its original concept, over the years Italia has evolved with the addition of new technical details, better-performing equipment, and more sophisticated finishes, confirming its vocation for maximum functional results.
