Salvadori Arte is the last heir of Pistoia's great metallurgical tradition, which started in the eleventh century and reached its greatest splendour in the first decades to the twentieth century when the Lippi and Michelucci foundries were still active.
The "Zeus" of Athens, the Horses of Saint Mark's in Venice, the "Marco Aurelio" of the Campidoglio in Rome, the large sculptures of the Renaissance have been made with the same procedure that, through the time, has remained partially unchanged. Salvadori Arte casts works in bronze, brass, aluminium and ferrous alloy as cast-iron and stainless steel, using the lost wax method, the same technique used through the ages first by the Egyptians, then by the Greeks, Etruscan and Roman.
The Salvadori Arte foundry makes bronze sculptures for the most important Italian and foreign artists as Roberto Barni, Luigi Ontani, Claudio Parmiggiani, Mario Merz, Steven Cox, Jorio VIivarelli, Igor Mitoraj, Mark Kostabi, Beverly Pepper, Ilya Kabacov, Leonid Sokov, Grisha Bruskin, Umberto Mastroianni, Pericle Fazzini, Domenico Paladino, Daniel Spoerri, Antonio Manzi, Robert Morris, Bino Bini, Fernando Botero, Giuliano Vangi, Edoardo Bruno, Mario Ceroli, Pawel Althamer, Alexander Kosoloapov, Caleb O'Connoretc.. Some of its bronzes are found in the most important museums and art collections in the world, as well as in countless squares and park located in the cities of art.
