Fonderia Artistica Battaglia

Fonderia Battaglia has been casting in bronze for the greatest twentieth-century and contemporary artists since 1913. Battaglia’s artisans make use of a process that dates back to nearly 5,000 years ago: lost-wax casting. In addition to artisan skill and tradition, the foundry is committed to constant research work on bronze-related techniques, such as the experimentation project on patinas which has led to the creation of an archives collection of over 150 chromatic samples. The Foundry’s Restoration Department preserves and studies the history of ancient and modern bronze sculpture, while the Prototyping Laboratory experiments with new techniques.
