Design Story: Vivai del Sud - Italian heritage and craftsmanship


Vivai del Sud has Italian heritage design and craftsmanship in its DNA.

Brothers Giorgio, Gianfranco and Piero di Pierri founded Vivai del Sud in Rome in 1950; drawing inspiration from their Southern Italian roots in Puglia their designs captured the essence of Mediterranean living. Often collaborating with local artisans in their creations to add authenticity to their designs.

Initially a landscape design business, their pieces was created to furnish the winter gardens of Roman palazzos, branching out into interior design and later architecture in the 1970s when their furniture became popular in luxury hotels, restaurants and private residences across Italy.
