Interviews
Milan, Sculpture

The Gipsoteca Fumagalli & Dossi is one of the most fascinating and evocative Milanese ateliers. The workshop acquired part of the gypsum cast heritage of Gipsoteca Vallardi, after it went out of business in 1927. Generation after generation, the atelier is today conducted by Roberto Fumagalli and Mario Dossi and is the most important plaster casts supplier for art schools in Italy.

Milan, Restoration

Franco Vigorito and Luca Cagnola turned their common passion in their job. In their Milanese laboratory, with shop windows on the street, they painstakingly work at the restoration of wooden furniture both antique and modern: from precious Maggiolinis to more ordinary pieces of furniture. They also cooperate with the Superintendence for important restoration interventions.
