We started our American adventure in 2011. As unabashed romantics, we founded The Hidden Countship
without retail background, seeking to showcase the awe-inspiring skills of Italian master artisans simply for the sake of beauty, as a tribute to what is proudly Made in Italy.
Since opening its doors in Charleston, South Carolina, the store has marked many successes and made many, many new friends along the way. A very happy and fun story for the little boutique on a little alley in the town that we love to call our new home.
Giulio and I grew up in central Italy and as much as we treasured
our Italian traditions, we longed to see the World.
It was during our travels and adventures
that we ended up in the Lowcountry of South Carolina.
We quickly fell utterly in love with Charleston.
Prior to visiting The Holy City, we had never experienced
a city so sophisticated that reminded us of our heritage
and so charming that captured our hearts.
So Giulio and I decided to stay. Indefinitely.
Through living in a new country, we revitalized our passion for our home country.
As Charleston has taught us Southern traditions,
we have in turn shown Charleston the beauty of an Italian lifestyle.
We opened the Hidden Countship as a means to tell a story.
A means to reconnect to our roots.
A means to paint a picture while being outside of the canvas.
The Hidden Countship is growing everyday.
We like to think that we are growing with it.
While Charleston continues to blossom, we are happy to unite them.
