The hand-painted designs are the brainchild of Gerardo Ribigini, who inherited the studio from his father, but the workmanship reflects the talents of his wife, Assunta, and their children, Frederico and Claudia. Over three generations, they have sustained a family business that embodies the quality and integrity of true Italian artistry. Gerardo’s unique vision imbues the historic designs of the Renaissance with fresh colors and modern motifs. In partnership with Geribi, Via Umbria is pleased to make the craftsmanship and striking palette of Deruta accessible to American customers. They are a beautiful expression of the rich history that thrives in the bountiful region of Umbria.
