The House of Fontanini has been creating old world sculptures in the village of Bagni di Lucca, Italy for over one hundred years. Founded in 1908 by Emanuele Fontanini, The House of Fontanini today is led by the family’s fourth generation which prides itself on “Building Family Traditions”. Marco Fontanini visited MOSACK’S in Mentor, Ohio in 2007 and a few years earlier to sign their creations for our customers.
The Fontanini Family is world-famous for its craftsmanship. The life-like, heirloom-quality figures are hand-painted in Italian homes and are produced in eight different sizes.
