Banci Firenze was born in 1899 and got its name from the founder, Giuseppe Banci. First they had a shop and then a workshop for restoring chandeliers made of glass, crystal or iron.

The neighborhood of Santo Spirito in Florence, on the left side of the Arno, was the center of these shops and workshops of craftsmen. The handcraft of Florence, in particularly the forge of the iron, has long traditions and is well known all over the world. In Florence the cooperative of the blacksmiths was the most important and rich during the Medieval age and the Renaissance. In their laboratories they learn to forge the iron as in a shop of an artist they learn to paint.

The new Banci's catalogue has 4 volumes: LA TRADIZIONE, LA METAMORFOSI, LA NATURALEZZA E L'IMMAGINAZIONE.

La Tradizione is a collection of the classic production of Banci. Unique pieces entirely made in Italy.

La Metamorfosi displays objects born thanks to a careful design by matching different colours and materials.

La Naturalezza where flowers and plants are the inspiration for this line. From material as iron, brass and Murano glass, finely worked, what emerge are geranium or sunflowers, iris or tulips. The leaves wrap the lights and not even the rose will relinquish its thorns. The special attitude for design of Giovanni Banci allowed him to create and translate classical lines as well as to experiment in modern, ethnic or sometimes industrial styles.

L'immaginazione, the forth volume, shows us the growth of this attitude of Giovanni Banci, who kept the secrets that make metal a pliable material. Luca Bojola, one of the young apprentice designers of Giovanni Banci, is today a master designer and creates many of the Banci contemporary items.
