Art and design, between innovation and tradition

Bottega Franchi is a most interesting workshop. Soon after starting his activity, its founder, Fausto Maria Franchi (whose works have been shown in important dedicated exhibitions) combined artistic research with product design, applying the ancient chisel and lost wax techniques in a modern, innovative way. The same approach is being carried forward by the new generation, thanks to his son Enrico Franchi, who developed his own research in other interesting fields, extending his melting techniques with different metals from jewellery to sculpture, as well as creating and designing jewels and other artefacts.
