THE STORY

We are Luciano and Paola Fagnola, father and daughter, artisans and restorers of books.
Our atelier is born in 1955 as a little artisan bookbinding in the city center of Turin. In those few rooms of a XVI century building, arrives Luciano in 1975. He's an ex Salesian student and he broadens the horizons of the activity. He begins by doing paper stationery works, getting back in the game, learning the theories and the techniques of restoration of books and paper.
In different decades, we both have refined our knowledge of artistic bookbinding at the “Centro del Bel Libro in Ascona”. This is the international cornerstone in this sector, located in the Swiss side of Lake Maggiore.
By one side we have the experience and the manual curiosity of Luciano that since childhood has been interested in learning and improving. On the other side there's me, adding techniques and trends of these last years. I learnt them at the School of Higher Learning for Restorers in Rome, where I graduated in April 2016. Another great way of learning is to travel, meeting new people, talking to international professionals.
Nowadays the atelier is increased, there are new spaces where a family-team of seven people works with us covering the various working sectors. We welcome interns and we collaborate with associations and schools to tell the job that we love to students and enthusiasts.
