What it means to have an object designed by Picchiani e Barlacchi

Tradition, Made in Italy, Quality

Since the company’s official foundation in 1902, our origins, rooted in the Florentine cultural and artistic territory, have allowed us to continue the business, keeping it virtually unchanged for over a century.

We produce prestigious objects completely autonomously, without delegating any phase of the processing and without using foreign products of poor quality thereby developing and promoting the excellence of Made in Italy.

When we accept your project, we do not limit ourselves to merely shaping the metal, but we take care of every detail, giving life to an immortal object that reflects your value 100% and which is able to celebrate the importance of the occasion.

The Picchiani e Barlacchi method

The working of the objects according to the Picchiani e Barlacchi method requires several phases, including the design, the creation of the plaster model, the melting and finishing of the art model, the pantograph reduction, the production of the punch and mint, the moulding, galvanic finishing and the quality control.

Each phase is carefully monitored by our professionals, artisans and engravers who are responsible for retouching by hand possible machine inaccuracies to correct even the smallest detail within the various phases of the process.

Once the production process is complete, the pieces are checked one by one and selected so that the entire order is free from defects at the time of shipping or collection.
