For nearly a century, here, in this historic workshop of Bologna, visitors have watched the magic of iron being worked into different shapes. Today it is Pierluigi, the founder’s grandson, who devotes himself to the creation of precious decorative objects in both classic and modern styles, in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, all realized with the humanity and competence that distinguish a skilled craftsman. Over the years this workshop, with its old-fashioned charm, has won numerous awards and thus become a point of reference in the art of wrought iron. Among its most prestigious works: the portrait of Eisenhower given to the White House by the Chamber of Commerce of Bologna.
