What is Marcopoloni?

Our goal is to bring people like you, who cherish and appreciate fine artistry, closer to the artisans who create them. Everything we offer is handmade by carefully-selected artisans who pour their love and pride into each piece of work.

Much as Marco Polo brought the Western world in contact with the treasures of the Far East in the late 13th century, Marcopoloni strives to put you in touch with beautiful handmade goods from around the world!

Roma Looks Unstoppable

Roma has convinced me that it deserves this championship. I believe that Napoli is going to be the contender. Juventus instead is using the referee crutch and has already lost credibility. . . . → Read More: Roma Looks Unstoppable

Sailing Into Fiscal Headwinds

In my last post, I said that the Fed made the right decision because the economy has been weak this quarter and it is going to face some fiscal headwinds. By fiscal headwinds I was really envisioning the debilitating debate in Washington over the debt ceiling. I should have been more specific and called . . . → Read More: Sailing Into Fiscal Headwinds

It Is A Different Inter This Year

Inter destroyed Sassuolo today 7-0. But all the top five contenders won and the standings are unchanged. The most impressive victory was by Napoli at Milan’s expense. I now see Napoli and Roma as legitimate (not accidental) table leaders. Lazio and Milan have already lost touch with the top of the table. . . . → Read More: It Is A Different Inter This Year

Fed Tapering Will Have to Wait

The economy is not strong enough to begin tapering bond purchases by the Fed. Mr. Bernanke, in my opinion, made the right decision that will help the economy. The head winds of fiscal tightening are too strong to add to them. As a small business owner I say thank you for not delivering a double punch (tapering plus debt-ceiling cuts). . . . → Read More: Fed Tapering Will Have to Wait

Inter Survives the Juventus Test

Inter rose to the Juventus challenge and tied against it by scoring first. But it couldn’t rise further and beat a strong opponent. It seems that Inter can have a good season and perhaps even rise to the third spot. . . . → Read More: Inter Survives the Juventus Test
