Mario Talarico and his nephew, Mario Jnr., have been making the finest umbrellas out of their atelier in Naples for over 4 generations.
The wood for the umbrella shafts is delivered to their workshop in Naples in it's raw form. Then it is shaped and formed into the exquisite umbrellas that Talarico has become famous for. Talarico is the only umbrella producer that crafts umbrellas from start to finish in this manner. A one-piece umbrella will typically take 7 hours from start to finish.
When Mario Jnr. isn't making umbrellas, he can be found hand painting intricate designs on the canopy, most famously, he created a unique design for the Pope.
