Massimiliano Gurrieri manager of the actual Federici Workshop in Bologna, Italy is very happy to announce that their

Florentine frames are actually ready and available for sale. The company, that has been in business since 1905, is among the best in its trade in the EU zone.

The specialty of the Workshop include the old-fashioned frame replicas. Many have been created for traditional master artworks belonging to museums, significant Art Galleries and private collection enthusiasts since 1905. The workshop makes the following styles: Baroque, Neoclassical, Italian and Spanish. Each frame is created choosing best materials as antique carvers and gilders had done before.

A documentation of Autenticity is delivered together with the painting frame, under request to the client, presenting the precise details of the frame.

As soon as Massimiliano Gurrieri was 13 he decided to wood carve a replica frame for an antique painting. Mr. Gurrieri had the truly great opportunity to develop his expertise in the field of the replica frames at a quite early edge having as teachers the best carvers of European union. This is the main reason regarding the fine abilities of Massimiliano Gurrieri.

A very curious aspect of old frames is that lots of them were damaged during the second world war becouse Germans, in the very end of the conflict begin to destroy the picture frames of the old master paintings that they had stolen throughout the countries under their control achieving to hold them in a easier way, in fact artworks without frame can weight a lot less and could occupied significantly less space. Here is the primary reason why nowdays there is a thousands of old paintings with no frame or with a very bad frame that has not been produced toghether with the painting.

The main method of obtaining inspiration for the employees of Workshop Federici comes from the wood frames collected at Pinacoteca Bologna Museum where you'll able to admire lots of Italian original classic paintings. Among the others, these types of replicas have been used for framing painters as Raffaello and Guido Reni.
