Gioia Italian Art and Products is the realization of a promise made and a dream vision of a 20-year-old Katherine Brigantino living and studying in Rome Italy. "As a young girl I knew that someday I would be working again with the Italian people." In 2005 Kathy (Brigantino) Winkelman and her business partner Lee Marie Michals created Gioia Company Italian Art and Products based on the idea of sharing the Joy (Gioia) the arts bring to the world, connecting with artists they already knew, and working marketplace they were very familiar with--Italy! Everyone loves the Italian arts!
Gioia works directly with artists in the US and Italy to bring you the finest of ceramics, flatware, linens, jewelry, statues and more, at affordable prices, "Made in the USA" and "Made in Italy" to support both economies. Our clients are our best advisors.
The company supports education about the Italian Heritage Arts and fund-raising efforts for non-profits in the Italian Communities here and our surrounding areas. The featured Artist for Gioia Company is Italian Mask Maker and Sculptor Carla Almanza-deQuant who studied and perfected this art of the 16th and 17th Centuries in Florence, Italy. Carla works closely with Kathy and Lee Marie creating custom artworks and teaching Venetian Mask Making classes with Gioia Company.
