Today we visited the Traviganti Metal workshop in Milan. A large place with lots of interesting machine’s. Craftsmen make all kinds of metal objects, functional items such as beer taps and vases and less functional object such as larger than life Fabergé eggs, robots, horses with Swarovski stones, and other useless luxurious stuff. Amazing! It was a true joy to visit this studio. This workplace isn’t very tidy, the work is.
