In 1960 Renzo Scarpelli, born in Firenzuola (FI) in 1947, set foot for the first time in Giovanni Fiaschi's shop in the center of Florence and as it was used to do in the artisan shops at the time, Renzo joined the team to learn by looking. In 1972 he managed to open his own company in a small fund on the suborbs of Florence and there he began to make his handworks and successfully sold them to the shops in the city center. Renzo is an enterprising and obstinate man and with the sign "Le Pietre nell'Arte" in 1977 he moved his workshop to a larger space in the same area. The room adjacent to this new space became a mosaic and gift shop managed by his wife Gabriella. Renzo is a master in giving shape to stone that becomes a play of light and shadow thanks to his experience in technique and refinement that combined with a passion for art make him a complete artist.
