Upon leafing through the book, it soon emerges that the most important names of Tuscan interior design and high quality are: Antico Setificio Fiorentino, Casa d’Arte Paoletti, Cipriani Serramenti, I Vassalletti, Le Porcellane Home and Lighting, Officine Gullo, Stefano Ricci Home and Giusto Manetti Battiloro.
Tuscany Homecraft was developed from an idea of Gruppo Editoriale di Prato and accompanies the reader on a wonderful journey of discovery along the path of growth of tuscan craftsmanship, a fine balance between past and present, attentive to elements of tradition and their reinterpretation in accordance with contemporaneity, combining local traditional production and the use of state-of-the-art technologies.
The book recounts the story of Giusto Manetti Battiloro in detail, with particular focus on the company’s history as world leader in the production of gold and silver leaf for over 500 years. From the regal finishings of Versailles to the renewal of the Fondazione Prada, gold leaf is a key feature of luxury design. Equally precise and detailed accounts of the other companies are characterised by particular attention to history and reasons for which they have emerged as top companies of Luxury Tuscan and world Craftsmanship. This enables the reader to delve deeper into each company’s secrets, with step-by-step descriptions of their products through the use of photographic reportage.
During these particularly tough times for independent companies and Italian craftsmanship, the exceptional attention and dedication to quality of these eight companies has enabled them to differentiate themselves from global market standards and achieve their highest and most refined expression.
