The role of the cabinet-maker emerged during the Renaissance, when furniture, which until then comprised simple and standard features, began to follow the dictates of the new style and to incorporate wooden sculpture with inlaid and veneered panelling. In order to create these objects the woodworker must transform into a cabinet-maker, the artisan must become an artist.
Over the course of the centuries this craft was honed, and with Baroque, but above all Rococo, it went as far as the application of metal and stone inserts. And so pieces of furniture became masterpieces, to this day sought after by collectors for their beauty.
Today the cabinet-maker often identifies with the artisan–woodworker, who is capable of producing unique pieces of great value and quality that can be fitted into personalised furnishings, based on tastes of the client and the expertise of the project architect.
It is not only that outer appearance which matters, but in our creations that which is concealed is of equal importance: an internal construction inherited from a 500-year-old Italian manufacturing tradition.
