FONDERIA ARTISTICA MARIANI

The new INTEGRATED and CUSTOMIZED SERVICE, combined with D.W.C. technology. (distant work’s control), allows us to be THE FIRST IN ITALY to offer each customer total immersion in his work.
From 1952 to today, Fonderia Artistica Mariani has excelled in quality for every type of processing, from the simplest to the most complex, continuing an innovative path of study and implementation in the field of all plastic arts.

Bronze, silver, white bronze, aluminium, brass and cast iron create our field of action with new alloys specifically created to meet customer needs.

Craftsmanship and the most advanced technology are the key elements of our success, which allow us to reproduce microscopic details, thanks to lost wax and vacuum casting with the Shell method.

THE KNOW-HOW OF CRAFTSMANSHIP WITH MODERN TECHNOLOGIES
FROM THE IDEA TO THE SHAPE, FROM PRODUCTION TO PRESERVATION
OVER 65 YEARS OF HISTORY, EXPERIMENTATION, KNOWLEDGE
ENLARGEMENTS AND FORMING
Clients provide two or three-dimensional models, which can be enlarged. The model can be supplied in any material, from which the negatives will then be obtained.
WAXES
First phase of the production process in which the wax copy of the model is created and retouched. The client can assist and collaborate in this phase to supervise the executive details.
COVERAGE
The wax copy is covered with a thin layer of ceramic which reproduces its surface (Shell Method). The wax is then extracted from the mold by heating in an oven.
FUSION
The metal, bronze or other alloy, in its molten state is poured into the ceramic negative and thus takes the detailed shape of the model we have created or supplied to us by the client.
FINISH
The various metal sections into which the work is divided, emerging from the casting, are cleaned, welded and assembled, until the aesthetic result desired by our client is obtained.
PATINA
The surface of the bronze is oxidized with appropriate chemical substances, copper-based or similar, with the aim of obtaining the color and shades that the client desires.
CUSTOM-MADE FOR YOU
With our 65 years of activity we accompany the artist in his creative journey in choosing the best techniques, materials, patinas and finishes, up to the most suitable packaging to guarantee safe and certified shipping.

With Distant Work Control, all you need is a smart phone to follow the various processing phases.

Once it arrives at its destination, our team will be available to set up the work on site, or, in the case of works installed for some time, for their conservation.

FROM PRODUCTION TO STORAGE
We take care of every phase of the creation of the work, thanks to specific programs with maintenance and conservation experts and we issue a production certificate which details the technical and material specifications.

DESIGN, ENGINEERING, ENLARGEMENTS
A photo, a scan, a drawing or a simple sketch will be the starting point for the creation of your work.

DEVELOPMENT OF CUSTOMIZED ALLOYS AND MATERIALS
We can design and develop original metal alloys to meet all your needs, whether formal or chromatic.

LOGISTIC SUPPORT
Suitable packaging and appropriate transport will guarantee the safety of your work to its destination, where our assistance, or the supply of an assembly manual created by us, will allow installation on site. We provide technical support in setting up exhibitions internationally.
