Hephaestus’ art has been practised by the Navarini family for generations and not by chance next to the workshop there is a museum that introduces the world of copper and its uses. In the last fifteen years most of Navarini’s production has been kitchen items and in particular pots, made entirely of copper or with a silver lining. The secret of the copper pot is that, thanks to the specific conduction capacity of this material, the heat distribution is much more uniform and therefore preferred by chefs and food lovers, who may also commission specific custom objects.
From Monday to Friday from 8 am to 12 noon and from 2 pm to 6 pm. The Museum is also open on Saturday and Sunday by appointment.
