Vietri, for instance, synonymous with Italian ceramic dinnerware in the U.S., is actually an American company co-found by two American women who, in traveling to Italy fell in love with hand-paint Italian designs and started an import company. Today, Vietri is the largest importer of Italian tabletop items in the U.S., bringing in goods from over 40 manufacturers. Among Vietri’s many offerings are blown glassware, urns, planters, stainless and pewter flatware and more.
