Italia is a professional kitchen for the home, perfect for home chefs who want to experience restaurant-style performance within their own four walls. Steel is the main player: tensile, hygienic and indestructible. All the layouts adhere to the same principle: generous worktops alongside spacious tall units with efficient, well-planned internal accessories, extended hob tops, two separate washing areas, one for pots and pans and the other for food preparation. The Italia door with recessed handle is an exclusive Arclinea patent.
The Italia professional work unit is 70 cm deep and designed to house two separate sinks, one for washing and the other for preparation, so that food does not come into contact with detergents and other materials used for cleaning pots and pans. In the centre, the large five-burner hob top, with cast iron pan-racks.
