Avoid mediocrity

What will your customers and collaborators think of your company if the object chosen to represent your excellence was perceived as being without any value or significance?

The widespread use of substandard materials and rough and ready (and standardised) processing conditions the final result that in fact turns out to be quite mediocre, strongly impacting on the company’s image.

Today, many companies prefer to save money by choosing very poor quality consumer goods with a limited duration over time and the result is that very often these items are thrown away after only a few days.

The engravers, designers, printers, galvanic finishers and many other professionals unceasingly work raw materials to give worth to your company, producing a medal that honours the goals achieved.

Our values and our sense of belonging

Florence is the most famous city of art in the world, cradle of the Renaissance and still today a land rich in culture, tradition and craftsmanship.

Workers have always found fertile ground in this city to develop and promote excellence and professionalism and this was also the case for Picchiani e Barlacchi that since 1896 has continued its activity almost unaltered.

Since the official foundation of the company in 1902 these have been our values:

This is our philosophy; these are the values​that guide every stage of working of our products, from the conception of the design to the finishing and quality control.

We believe in tradition, on which our company is based.

This is why we are against any form of improvisation: our objects are not just pieces of metal but precious memories to celebrate a special occasion, so they must be created to a professional standard.

We believe in Made in Italy, a precious resource of our country envied throughout the rest of the world.

We despise any attempt at imitation and any form of homologation that degrades the history of our country, the creative scope of our artists and craftsmen and the excellence of our products.

We firmly believe in quality.

This is why we avoid standardising and flattening our products, even when the operation would have an economic advantage. In no case do we cut corners on attention to detail or the perfection of the final product.
