About Us

Corporate Profile:

Peter Maniscalco, the founder and CEO of Maniscalco / Artistic Stone Gallery, Inc., was born in a small country town called Poggioreale in Eastern Sicily, Italy. At the age of ten he moved with his family to Australia, following in the footsteps of other relatives that previously moved to Sydney.

Peter attended De La Sel College, Ashfield majoring in accounting. For the next ten years he pursued a career as an accountant working for two large trading companies based in Sydney.

While on vacation, he traveled with a friend to Italy and stumbled across the Bologna Tile Fair. After attending the fair they both looked into the possibility of distributing Italian ceramic tile in Australia. This was the start of the great journey that drove him into the stone business.

Peter’s love for the natural stone, and his experience with the accounting side of a business, allowed him to build a company that currently has a presence in Turkey, China, India, Indonesia, Australia, Canada, and America. All of Peter’s family has been involved in the business.

In October 2003, Roberto and his wife Elizabeth, both 23 years old, moved to America to start their own operation. The American head office, now located in Menlo Park California, sits on a 100,000 square foot lot with 40,000 square feet of warehouse space. Roberto is planning to expand to the East Coast of the United States in the near future to better serve his customers east of the Mississippi River.

Roberto’s main goals are to distribute unique and exciting decorative products throughout the US. He also maintains superior inventories and high service standards at competitive prices.

Roberto’s passion for decorative products shows with the constant new designs Maniscalco has to offer. Through Maniscalco’s product, he expresses his love for the stone and tile business his father started many years earlier. Roberto and Peter would like all Americans to experience a glimpse of what the Great Southern Land has to offer.

Maniscalco believes in teamwork, integrity, accountability and positive energy. We look forward to being an important part of your future success.
