Portego products are the outcome of the best craftmenship from a special Italian region Veneto and talent designers.
We work as one community to develope products holders of the local tradition with innovative style.
/Pòr-te-go/ means "porch" in Venetian dialect.
Portego is also one of the most characteristic architectural detail in Venice and his region, where people meet to have a café or exchange goods from all over the world.
Portego is a design brand which connects – through a synergy of processes and knowledge – the talents of designers with the commitment of c raftsmen, leading to the production of items which express profound love for Italian manuf acturing excellence. With strong links to its home region, the Veneto, w ith its rich cultural, artistic and historic heritage, Portego selects the best local craft manu facturers and involves them in the production of high-design products, which are conte mporary yet express echoes of the past. The Veneto region is, as a matter of fact, particul arly rich in areas of specialised manufacturing, each with its own tradition and craf t identity: a heritage which requires protection and updating through the planning qualit y of high design and technological and digital knowledge. Portego then connects the skills of the craft manuf acturers with talented designers, brought together by their sensitivity towards craft manufac turing techniques and the ability to revive them in contemporary objects with a timeless appeal . It is a virtuous platform, conceived by Flavia Test i and Stefano Rossi, which – by operating within a limited area – guarantees the quality of h uman relations between all those involved, traceability of the materials used and th e sustainability of the entire production process. Production which is at the same time exclusive and local, which does not conform to industrial product standardisation, in order to fol low new and different expressive visions and languages. With local Italian design objects av ailable to the world.
