A Bit About Us... Ivo Giuliani was born in Aramo, Italy in 1940. He arrived in the United States in 1958 and settled in San Francisco with his mother and most of his siblings. He started working for a firm that specialized in architectural restoration of exterior ornaments on the facades of buildings. It was here that he learned the trade of mold making. He went on to open his own shop in the early 1960s but was forced to close after a short time. He ventured, with his wife and young son into Oregon and into the auto repair and maintenance field. He worked for others, finally building and running his own shop for about 10 years. In 1985 he returned to the work he loved by closing his auto repair business and opening Ital Art in the very same building. In 1989 the business moved to its present two-acre facility. Ivo spends most of his energy on mold making and overseeing production. He has returned to the job he loves creating the highest quality molds to create the finest possible castings that carry the Ital Art name.
Marco Giuliani was born in San Francisco, California in 1969. A native Oregonian since 1972, he has worked in the ornamental art industry full-time since 1992.
