A Florentine tradition

  • • Carlo specialises in antique frame making
  • • His craft responds to needs of the market
  • • He uses traditional techniques to create his pieces

Carlo Puccini began by working in the historic Bartolozzi and Maioli workshop, one of Florence’s most prestigious antique ateliers. He took part in the important restoration of wooden works for the Abbey of Montecassino and the secular choirs. After mastering the art of making frames, in 1989 he opened his own workshop in Florence. The concept of carving is to create objects that, apart from being very beautiful, must have a practical purpose. This is why the workshops of Florence dedicate themselves to the production of furnishing accessories and frames. The workshop of Carlo also delivers works of cabinet making, carving and gilding, as well as special furnishings and ornamental objects. It excels in the creation of decorated and golden frames.
