About the Creators: Vivai del Sud was started by Piero, Giorgio and Gianfranco Di Pierri after having left the Puglia region for Rome in 1964. In Rome they concentrated their efforts and inventiveness on landscape architecture. They were an immediate success as their unmatched creativity captivated the whole of Italy. But landscape architecture soon grew too confining for the Di Pierris and they decided to tackle the alluring market of interior decoration. They concentrated on a limited production of highly sophisticated, exclusives pieces and their farsighted marketing approach paid off. They opened several branches in foreign countries and soon embarked on the designing of entire, free-standing architectural structures such as hotels, residential areas civic centres etc. The rest is history.
