Experience

Frame your memories in an artistic way

The technical knowledge of ancient art workshops’ gilders has handed down wonders that shine with their own light. As then, even today it is possible to reach that wonder by rediscovering the traditional gilding techniques as they were practiced since the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. You will discover all this in a workshop set up inside a restoration lab, where you can breathe a charm as ancient as gold, surrounded by works of art from the Tuscan territory.Join Marco, Marzia and Paola: for one day you will be artists-gilders!

Inside a thirteenth-century building, you will be fascinated by art! You will be guided in the gilding of a little wooden frame according to the expressive effects that you like most.

At the end, you will have realized with your hands a little work of art, to take home, perfect to frame your favorite souvenir photo, to embellish your home or to transform into a mirror! Even children can set their creativity free by decorating a frame with acrylic colors, suitable for them!
