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