Though it started as a small store in town centre of Florence and without altering its hand-crafted soul, SAVIO FIRMINO® has become a worldwide esteemed and renowned firm within the past seventy-five years. Founded in 1941 by Firmino Savio, an expert carver, the enterprise started its business the same year in which Guido, the owner’s second son, was born.
Following the mastery and the passion his father dedicated to his job, Guido Savio since his youth has learnt the secrets of handicrafts and developed a profound passion for art, design, culture and beauty. Along with his brother Amedeo, during his education, experimentation and hard work at SAVIO FIRMINO®, Guido created a distinctive style, recognizable in every design and item created by the company.
The classical and timeless SAVIO FIRMINO® style is the result of artisan expertise and mastery of handicrafts. Passion and artistic sensitivity nurtured in Florence, cradle of the Italian Renaissance where the most beautiful works of Art can be found, have influenced the unique design of SAVIO FIRMINO®.
Our artists’ expert and skilful hands give birth to prestigious items that offer, also to the most demanding public, distinctive and innovative furnishing solutions for the most exclusive residences.
Guido and Amedeo Savio are running their business along with their heirs: Amedeo’s daughter, Michela, and Guido’s sons, Cosimo and Gregorio. The company constantly focuses its attention to every single detail, to research and development. Today as yesterday, SAVIO FIRMINO® gets inspired by the values of the classical tradition using, contemporarily, innovative techniques and advanced machineries. This has led to a perfect combination of expert craftsmanship, creativity, quality and professional service.
