Business Description

Gioia Company is created to bring “Joy to Those Who Give and Those Who Receive.” We are dedicated to supporting the Italian and American Italian Arts by bringing treasured Italian gifts to our customers who are interested in fine Italian heritage crafts.


We offer our Italian gifts online, at Italian festivals and at special events, called "Festa Gioia." We can arrange a Festa for your clients or friends--an easy and entertaining way to enjoy an afternoon. We can also handle your holiday and other gift-shopping needs. You can select your Italian gift online, provide us with a list of recipiants and we'll handle the rest from wrapping to shipping.


Many of our Italian gifts are manufactured by a family business or a single artisan so no two items are exactly the same. We look for partners who share our passion for spreading “gioia” (joy) to others.


Join us for “Festa Gioia,” a walk through the piazzas of Italy, shopping, enjoying Italian cuisine, and meeting the people. To receive our Gioia Updates send your e-mail address to Abbondanza!
