Luigi Pitzalis, coppersmith

I was born in Isili in 1952 from an ancient family of coppersmiths, growin up in such an environment I learned the art of the job; and I was attracted by the idea of taking along on time this centuries-old tradition, that was showing signs of abandonment, likewise other expressions of traditional craftmanships that are being replaced by machines.

After opening my first shop in 1978 I sharpened my skills while working for several years with an old coppersmith. During this years I learnt multiple methods of metalworking, I had the chance to see other laboratories and spent a lot of time studying ancient objects.
In 1978 I opened the first shop and my training is determining the relationship with an old coppersmith who for several years agreed to work with me. It is established from the study of the disciplines relevant to the processing of metals, from visiting other laboratories and the study of ancient objects.
