Holiday Elegance with ARTE ITALICA

Arte Italica has established itself as a leader in elegant, innovative and exclusive design for the home. Each piece is handcrafted in Europe, using techniques passed down through generations of skilled artisans. We invite you to visit COVER STORY to view the largest selection of Arte Italica in the west! From the classic Tuscan and Tavola to the new Medici and Pietra collections, we have everything you've come to love in Arte Italica.

Meet the Owner! On Friday, November 20th from 5-8, owner Ann Skidmore will join us along with Maryann Hairfield, the National Sales Manager for Arte Italica.

Ann Skidmore formed Arte Italica in 1997, as a response to her love of Italian history, culture, art and especially vintage pewter. Finding it difficult to acquire in the United States, she began importing this fine Italian pewter. Soon, she was designing and importing handcrafted ceramics, glass and bronze. In 2000, Ann and Arte Italica became the first to combine pewter and ceramic into beautiful and unique dinnerware and accessories. And at Cover Story, every Bridal Registry we have includes Arte Italica! Arte Italica makes a beautiful, heirloom quality gift.
