Gessoed frame preparing

Since 1905 the Federici Workshop reproduces and sells antique and modern high quality frames. The frames are made by the ancient techniques of great masters of the past using carving, gilding and varnishing of the wood. Each product is delivered under request with a Certificate of Authenticity that guarantees the originality of the product. The process of decorating the frames is done entirely by hand. The use of the machines is just in the very beginning during the construction of the wooden frame.
