The Foundation / Criteria for excellence Innovation

"We spend every free moment experimenting, for example to test the response of iron to acids, salt, rust and abrasion. We hope one day to publish the results of our research. Research and experimentation are vital for us: without them there can be no future. They constitute an investment in our business."

Alessandro Rametta and Andrea Capriotti are the heart of La Fucina di Efesto, a Milan workshop named after the Greek god of fire and metallurgy. Highly skilled in both traditional and innovative techniques, they often experiment on metals such as iron, copper and brass to enhance the beauty of the raw material.
