Hints of history
Tintoretto Pennelli was born in 1999 from an idea of the founder Egisto Forzini, determined to leave the paint sector to move into the artisan production of professional Fine Arts brushes.
Driven by a natural propensity and love for the artistic world, already consolidated over the course of his twenty years of experience in the Art market, he turned to the master shopkeepers and craftsmen present for generations in one of the territories that have cultivated and nurtured Renaissance painting: Arezzo, a medieval city and land of ancient traditions, located a few km from Florence.
With the help and valuable advice of the experts who for centuries have handed down the secrets and techniques of the creation of the brush, Forzini has come to know of a whole new world full of history, characterized by wise gestures and care of details, ranging from knowing how to grasp the quality of raw materials to the ultimate goal of recreating an instrument that is not just a simple tool yet the real extension of the Artist’s hand.
It is precisely this knowledge, which combines technique and professionalism with aesthetic taste, that still characterizes Tintoretto Pennelli.
Our craftsmen proudly guard the secrets and tricks of the trade handed down from the study and passion of the founder, who not only lived in contact with a reality imbued with tradition, but went back to the birth of the brush, making history a solid ground on which to base the future, Innovation.
