In the depths of Italian tradition, we place ourselves between past and future, offering today's artists an equivalent version of colors that were used by masters of art in the past. Prepared with the same approach as the historical craftsmanship of color, we combine these methods of production with the skills and knowledge of modern science.
Ancient pigments are our inspiration, translating the strong link we have with the Earth and the three kingdoms of Nature: minerals, plants and animals, the main sources from which men obtained and transformed materials to paint.
By developing awareness of the origin of the materials, we believe that we can bring the artist back to his role as a medium between Earth and Heaven, Nature and Spirit, World and Humanity. Because of these reasons we select the best pigments from the three kingdoms of Nature, with a preference to minerals, the oldest kingdom, and also the one that guarantees incomparable lightfastness.
We select and purify the best Earth pigments, that human civilizations have used for many millennia, searching for the most advanced and optimum performing mineral pigments of the last decades. For the lovers of tradition, we prepare our own historical colours of a plant and animal origin, of which characteristics are no longer common, and take us back to past centuries when they were. We don’t use organic pigments that come from chemical petroleum industries, as it stretches far away from intimate traditions.
