A SELECTION OF OUR PRODUCTS
YOUR SYMBOL IMPRESSED IN METAL

The trophy is the symbol par excellence of business success and of a goal achieved by you or by your collaborators.

Thanks to our experience you have the security of giving employees a lasting object that is the appropriate recognition of the work done and a symbol of appreciation for the objectives achieved.
What will they think of your company, if you give people an object that has no value or meaning?
The widespread use of substandard materials and rough and ready processing conditions the final result which can turn out to be quite mediocre diminishing the great work accomplished through the commitment by you and by your collaborators.
Today, many companies prefer to save money, choosing consumer goods of poor quality and limited duration with a resulting detrimental impact on the corporate image.

Since 1902, Picchiani e Barlacchi has been creating unique trophies according to the family company tradition, guaranteeing an impeccable result that satisfies the highest of expectations.

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:
We believe in tradition, on which our company is based.
For this reason we are against any form of improvisation: our products are not pieces of metal, but immortal objects to preserve an important memory over time and as such 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.

DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS?
You will find all the answers here
How long does it take to receive my trophy?
The working process, from the design of the project to the casting and finishing, requires the respecting of precise times. This is not a standardised process, but a true work that requires the mastery and meticulous attention of each person involved.
Once the design is approved, it takes approximately 30 days of actual work to provide you with an excellent trophy that represents the efficiency of your work.
How much can a trophy cost?
Some companies choose to purchase products with standardised manufacturing processes, commercial gadgets and promotional accessories of low value, where personalisation involves engraving of the date or a few elements, never the project in its entirety.
What value does corporate prestige have for you? How much can an object of such low quality in terms of reputation cost you towards your colleagues or your employees?
Economic savings are often evident in the coarse finishes, in the defects of casting and in the faults and risk embarrassing your company and diminishing the meaning of the occasion being celebrated.
The Picchiani e Barlacchi trophies are true works of art that guarantee you a unique product, able to perfectly convey the reputation of your company. To take advantage of our years of professionalism, call us now and explain your requirements to us.
How can I be sure of the end result?
To correctly represent the memory you are aiming to celebrate, we take care of the details at all phases of processing, reducing the imperfections to almost zero.
In any case, by way of insurance, you have our 100% satisfaction personal guarantee, so if the trophy were to present even a tiny defect, it would be discarded and reproduced from scratch.
Does one promotional item deserve another?
There are many possible gadgets that are produced for the most varied of occasions, but the meanings they convey are very different from those of a trophy.The trophy is the only object that concretely represents the business success achieved in a lasting manner.
By choosing a Picchiani e Barlacchi trophy you place your trust in a solid heritage of over a century and you are sure to achieve the desired effect in the people you are awarding it to.
