Perfetta WordPress Theme is the first of our new generation of themes that uses the Theme Customizer for the configuration options, rather than relying on an existing framework.
The demo content, which includes the sample menus, posts and images, can be downloaded as a WXR file from this page; a guide to importing this content may be found here.
The Theme Customizer options for Perfetta WordPress Theme contains several useful sections as per the below screenshot:
Site Title & Tagline
In this section you may specify the title logo and its tagline. The tagline is displayed on a second line underneath the logo.
The Perfetta WordPress Theme uses 3 basic colors: a color for the background, a main color for links and important elements and another color for the footer text which can be adjusted to compliment the current background image:
The background image of the theme can be defined and adjusted in this section:
The theme contains two menu areas: the main menu and the footer menu used for the social icons; if you’ve imported the demo content then the menus are already prepared, but they must be assigned to their respective positions in the Appearance>Menus section of your WP backend:

The available CSS classes for social media icons are as follows:

Layout & Features
All other important settings are available in this section:
Amount of bottom columns is used to set number of columns in the bottom area; the default is two. By changing this setting to three you will have some additional space to add more information via a text widget if necessary.
The color of the bottom area can be set in the Color of the bottom setting.
It is possible to use the theme default date format or enable usage of the WordPress settings date format using the Date format option.
