Lisa van de Pol & Claudio Assandri Italian Summers Design, The Story Behind


Lisa van de Pol & Claudio Assandri

Claudio, a Roman Artist and Lisa, a social media manager, photographer and passionate Italia-lover from a tiny little place in The Netherlands cross paths in Rome,.. yes, yesโ€ฆ all roads lead to Rome. You know that! Lisa comes up with the idea to throw their creativity and passion for Italy in a big pot and make it into a completely new recipe, named Italian Summers Designs.

Design with a passion for Italy

Art and Design, Ceramics and T-shirts, travel and lifestyle. Loving tasty Mozzarellas, Fun Vespas and Happy Cinquecentos… loving driving in a 1969 Alfa Romeo Giulia coupe on the Amalfi Coast… sipping a Martini on Capri or exploring the rolling hills of Tuscany in a mint-green Fiat Panda…

They just Love Italia

Art and Design, Ceramics and T-shirts, travel and lifestyle. Loving tasty Mozzarellas, Fun Vespas and Happy Cinquecentos… loving driving in a 1969 Alfa Romeo Giulia coupe on the Amalfi Coast… sipping a Martini on Capri or exploring the rolling hills of Tuscany in a mint-green Fiat Panda…

Teamwork,.. You cookah, ai drinkah vino

Claudio is the true artist, he designs the ceramics, creates visual concepts of Italian Summers Design Lifestyle, in addition, he is also a sculptor and a writer. You might know that every artist likes to be busy with his artwork and would rather not deal with the commercial part. Here Lisa jumps in, she loves everything about social media and co-designs the creations. With her background in fashion and love for Italy, you will often find a feminine touch in their works! ENJOY!

Lisa van de Pol & Claudio Assandri, the creative souls behind Italian Summers Design

We just like ‘Made in Italy’ and that’s what we do!

During our walks trough Italy and especially the larger cities such as Rome, we were surprised about the incredible mess that is offered to tourists! Cheap plastic things that fall apart from misery. Our biggest annoyance is that 90 percent of all the items is not even manufactured in Italy!

Our own collection, unique artworks made with a smile

That’s when the idea came to make our own collection, it’s a new concept. Our items are all made in Italy by Claudio, who is the true Artist. Lisa comes up with idea’s for the designs and takes care about Social Media and the website. If you are looking for something original from Italy and about Italy,…you found it! Made in Italy!
