Mariani Artistic Foundry

The new integrated and custom made service, together with the D.W.C. (distant work's control), allows us to be the first in Italy to offer our clients a full immersion of their works.

The Company

The company was founded in 1952 by Claudio Mariani. Over the years it has grown from being a small workshop to a company able to carry out more complex products thanks to able experimentation and innovation.
The Fonderia’s capacity of producing high quality products from various plastic materials has become their symbol of recognition.

The selection of manufactured materials ranges from bronze to silver, from alpaca to aluminium. Other materials such as brass, cast iron and alloys are used as well and are specifically created to satisfy the needs of each and every client.

The company has always developed a harmonious formula that combines age-old craftsmanship knowledge with today’s modern technology.

The company is also able to reproduce microscopic details with the use of lost-wax casting, thanks to a long-standing experience in vacuum melting with the Shell method.

The company is located only 500 meters away from the historic Centre of Pietrasanta, a strategic position due to the fact that it is close to various accommodation facilities and other services.

The foundry works only on a commission basis. During the years their clients have included artists, designers and other creative individuals from all 5 continents.
