“Our classic collections”, explains Alberto, “have always generated interest among seekers of high status products for interiors and furnishings. But the real novelty, which is appreciated by everyone, is the Arte Mariani collection and the new works that we created with our artists over the last few months.”

The desire for frescos is stronger than ever, even more so when the subjects are modern and aesthetically appealing. And the new Mariani Affreschi line responds perfectly to this renewed demand in the interior design and contemporary art field.

Continual updates and the desire to innovate and look beyond are the driving force behind the entrepreneurial spirit of Mariani. This is further reconfirmed by the numerous collaborations that the company has formed, which were unveiled at the Milanese furniture fair this year.
“We firmly believe in partnerships as a fundamental business philosophy in today’s market. Extremely interesting collaborations have developed with Bertolotto, Bakokko Group and Vetro dei Dogi. Through this exchange of ideas and projects, new and exciting creations that meet the needs of contemporary living are often born,”.
