Emily

Emily

CEO
Director of Logistics

I've worked for many years as a papercrafter designer, craft teacher and shop assistant for DIY stores. In 2017 I put to good use these experiences when we launched Ciao Bella, but I had no idea what was in store. For sure I didn't expect to be getting such a quick positive response from the public. Working together is an amazing journey that I feel grateful to be part of.

Lydia

Lydia

Managing Director
Art Director

For more than 25 years I've been in business, identifying the most promising brands for successful investment, and I was IT service manager for e-commerce platforms. Creating a new brand from scratch, modern and innovative, in a highly competitive industry where few big companies rule over the market, it seemed an impossible mission. But I like challenges so... let's do it!

Stephane

Stephane

Director of Import Export Management

For over 20 years I had a career as import-export manager for Italian companies and I was responsible for the production quality in Asia. I have lived in many parts of the world, including over 11 years in Thailand, 2 years in Spain, 5 years in Paris, France, and currently in Belgium. In 2018 I met Ciao Bella and it took me little time to know this was the kind of company I wanted to work with. Since then I'm senior import-export manager for this great team of creative women. No regrets!

Sara

Sara

Social Media Manager
Senior Illustrator

I'm a psychologist and illustrator with a deep interest in communication, I have always tried to combine these three ways to express myself and that has happened at Ciao Bella. After a first collaboration as an illustrator, I took a break for a specific training in web communication, to return as social media manager. And here nothing has changed in the meantime: always many projects in progress, the same desire to do new designs, positivity and great humor. I'm home!

Elisabetta

Elisabetta

Director of
Warehouse Operations

I've always been passionate about books and paper, so much so that I have discussed a thesis at the Faculty of Foreign Languages and Literatures on the ancient manuscripts in Old High German preserved in monasteries. I was able to fulfill my dream with my job, where every day I see new paper projects being created. I'm in charge of Ciao Bella's paper collections production and director of warehouse operations, tasks enhanced with new challenges every day due to CB's management dynamism!

Antonio

Antonio

Director of
Print Production

Paper and ink run through my veins. I come from a printers and publishers family who have always been involved in typographic printing covering the entire range of printed publications, from brochures to de luxe book editions. The meeting with Ciao Bella in 2017 marked the beginning of a beautiful partenership and my debut in letterpress printing for the art & craft as Ciao Bella's print production director. As a typographer, it's a real pleasure for me to print such a wonderful designs by Ciao Bella's artists!
