I was born in 1974 to Wanda and Michele Quartarella, then young newlyweds of less than thirty, who decided to call me Edil Habitat, because their idea was to create for their customers that perfect habitat with the best building materials that the market proposed. How excited when Michele found my first home! It was a small room in the center of Altamura that served as a warehouse in the rear and as an exhibition in the front. Michele and Wanda carefully chose all the materials that we would offer to our customers.
They decided that we had to be specialized in hand-crafted and hand-painted tiles, sanitary ware, taps and furniture of the highest quality. I had two beautiful windows and always in order. It was beautiful when people who walked on that street stopped and was enchanted to admire me! Not to mention the emotion I felt every time someone walked through the front door to enter to choose products for their home … indescribable!
This is how my story began, two hearts and a small exhibition … Michele took care of me full time, he was my sales consultant, warehouse worker, accountant … Wanda, occupied with the profession of university teacher, as soon as she had a minute of free time ran to me to help Michele in my management. It was great to feel their love and their desire to make me grow so that I became stronger and more beautiful.
Many sacrifices and many challenges … and I slowly started to grow. Other collaborators arrived who began to help Michele take care of me, a warehouse worker and an accountant. Michele and Wanda’s family also grew up with their three children Daniela, Nicola and Lory. How can we forget their cries or their cries, after all they grew within my walls and I immediately became attached to them …
