The Italian Trade Commission has launched a new website, http://www.italytile.com , to link Italian manufacturers of ceramic tile to the North American market. "The website acts as a meeting place where Italian manufacturers can connect with dealers, distributors and retailers in the U.S. and Canada," said Giovanni Bifulco, deputy trade commissioner at the Italian Trade Commission. "Architects, decorators, designers, contractors and home buyers are all currently visiting the site, which acts as a one-stop shop for comprehensive information on ceramic tiles, ranging from their history to different available product types and to how to find a local dealer." Based in New York, N.Y., The Italian Trade Commission is an Italian government agency that promotes and markets Italian products worldwide. The Ceramic Tile Department was founded in collaboration with Assopiastrelle, the Italian Association of Ceramic Tile & Refractory Manufacturers.
