1 Passage du Grand Cerf, 75002 Paris, France

54 Rue de Seine, 75006 Paris, France

Loc. Fossatello, 50, 05019 Orvieto TR, Italy

During my last stay in Florence, I wanted to learn more about the artisan trades, and Bruscoli was recommended to me by a local. I am so glad it was. As I walked along the Arno River on my way to the workshop, I had no idea what an extraordinary...
