A point of reference for collectors and antique dealers, private customers and museums: the Leone workshop makes and restores frames according to the fourteenth-century techniques. Frames, mirrors and tabernacles in any style. Built with old wood, hand-carved, the gold plating is done in gouache only with pure gold leaf, and the colours are made only with natural materials.

Throughout the world there are great works of art that were framed and restored by Leone.
