Classic designs in wrought iron

  • • Enrico runs a traditional workshop specialised in wrought iron creations
  • • He creates unique pieces and restores antiques
  • • His father Armando founded the workshop and still crafts exceptional pieces

Vocaturi Arte del Ferro is a traditional bottega (workshop) in the heart of Turin forging high-end creations in wrought iron. The history of the bottega follows a very typical pattern in Italy. In the 50s, the founder Armando Vocaturi came to Turin from southern Italy and started working in a local bottega specialising in restoring exceptional pieces from the most renowned antiques dealer in town. In just a few years, after Armando became sought after for his forging ability and knowledge of local styles and designs, he opened his own bottega, which is now run by his son Enrico. This new generation has the same philosophy: everything is strictly handmade, in classic styles and designs, with unparalleled craftsmanship.
