Founded in 1963 in the heart of Florence, Il Bronzetto is an internationally renowned company specialised in brass and bronze products, with 26 artisans working in-house. The founder Antonio Calcinai along with his sons Simone and Pierfrancesco and their cousin Michelangelo have inherited the secrets of an ancient craftsmanship, that they are updating through the use of modern techniques and machinery, such as 3D printing and numerical control milling.

The manufacture ranges from the replica and reinterpretation of traditional shapes to a bespoke service conceived to help designers and architects realise their visions.
