"ROMA-NZA" Collection





“Original Inspiration for the collection came justafter I saw William Wyler’s Vacanze Romane on my last trip to Rome ” SaysCreative director and founder Mark Farhat. “ Rome is the perfect city for aRomance. There is something that makes you fall in Love with it. I guess it allgoes back to the glamorous Italian Lifestyle and their true appreciation forthe good things in life, whether its beautifully crafted bags or simply the food!”

interior fabric prints used in thedesigns of all Mark / Giusti bags and accessories have been derived from floormosaics and intricate wall patterns from the architectural masterpieces of theByzantine Era.

This collection has been inspired bythe Basilica di San Lorenzo Fuori Le Mura (The Papal Basilica of Saint Lawrence outside theWalls). The Basilica is a Roman Catholic Parish church and minorBasilica located in Rome, Italy. It is one of the seven Pilgrim Churches inRome and one of the five Patriarchal basilicas. Before the present-day the basilicawas constructed, the estate upon which it sits was once home to a small oratorybuilt by Emperor Constantine I. The emperor built it over the site on which, itis believed, Saint Lawrence was executed. 

The portico, c. 1220, has Cosmati decoration by the Vassaletti family ofcraftsmen. The choir enclosure and pulpit also has Cosmati decoration, andthere is also a fine Cosmati Paschal candlestick made in the 12th or 13thcentury, where the lining for the “ROMA-NZA” Collection has been derived.

The palette for the “ROMA-NZA”Collection is very colorful, powerful and romantic. It includes deep ruby (RUBINO),lush mustard (SENAPE) and blue ocean (Oceano) colours. The primary leather forthis collection is a soft Timeless Nappa leather, which will feel and look evenmore gorgeous as it ages.

Mark / Giusti has a wide collection of beautifully crafted pieces that rangefrom luggage, weekend and sports bags, business bags and all small leatheraccessories such as wallets, I-pad and laptop covers.
