A skilled restorer and an expert in the field of metalwork, Nicola Savioli trained at a very special school, Florence’s Opificio delle Pietre Dure. Raised in a family of artisans, he soon developed a remarkable artistic feeling, in particular, a passion for metal objects, which today he restores by combining the use of old and modern techniques at his workshop, along with everyday use and historic artefacts of all periods, as well as small pieces of jewelry, arms and suits of armour, leather armour and big monuments.
