Presented in 1988, the Italia model marked the start of collaboration with Antonio Citterio, who was then to take over as art director and designer for the entire Collection. Right from its debut, Italia embraced the aesthetics and technical solutions typical of professional kitchens, bringing their functions and typical methods into the home years before this became a widespread trend: the characteristic handle, the prevailing use of steel, deeper worktops fitted with large cast iron hobs and double sinks, suspended hoods, and the iconic double-island layout. While staying loyal to its original concept, over the years Italia has evolved with the addition of new technical details, better-performing equipment, and more sophisticated finishes, confirming its vocation for maximum functional results.
ITALIA, MODUS DOORS SYSTEM
Italia island in stainless steel with Era snack bar is centre stage here, linked to the living area, compact and functional but designed also for socialising. Wood panelling in American black walnut, with integrated Modus horizontal folding doors, conceals a fully equipped work area, with professional tools and appliances. Stainless steel, hygienic, resistant and safe, and the go-to first choice for Arclinea production quality, is the recurring constant in this project, used for the Italia doors on the base units and tall units, the worktops with recess, the accessorised back panel with Mensolinea Shelf and Shelf Hood.
Organising the kitchen into separate zones allows you to enjoy your home in different yet complementary ways.
In the middle of the wood panelling, the Modus System horizontal folding doors with integrated handle in stainless steel finish open to reveal a fully functioning kitchen. The central zone has a 12 cm thick worktop, Italia doors with integrated handle, back panel with Shelf Hood and Mensolinea Shelf complete with di 3000K LED lighting profile and sliding accessories in American black walnut and ceramic. To either side, walls of tall units, on the left with ovens and pantry and on the right with fridge and freezer.
