“Made in Pietrasanta” ____________ Photos from the bronze foundries, sculpture studios and art laboratories by Enzo Cei

Pietrasanta-Scultura

Pietrasanta – as you may have heard us say before – is a charming little town on the northwestern coast of Tuscany. It is famous the world over for the bronze foundries, and marble studios where many international artists have worked for decades – with the help of the skilled artisans – the artigiani – who help bring the artists’ visions to “life.”

We post some evocative black and white photos from “Made in Pietrasanta” a book of photos by the photographer Enzo Cei, which chronicles the life of the laboratories in the “Città D’Arte.”
