Everything begins with the design made by the Master. The project is then zoomed on a 1:1 scale to analyze each detail (01, 02).
Taking the design as a reference, the iron is then heated in the coal forge; once incandescent, it is shaped by the artisan using hand tools such as a hammer, anvil and chisel. After the first phase, the blacksmith goes on with the making, comparing the
shapes of the iron pieces with the original design (03, 04, 05).
The wrought iron pieces are then put together thanks to the “chiodatura” (the antique method) or welding (the modern method) and then well-finished in all details (06).
After this phase, the pieces are installed in the workshop to verify the solidity, the appearance and the functionality. At this point, the items are ready for the finishing phase.
In case of an outdoor item, which is exposed to atmospheric agents, it undergoes a rust preventer varnish process. There are also two other processes that can be done for the wrought iron: the zinc-coat or the sandblast process, which guarantees a longer duration.
