This champagne cover is a real work of art. As a matter of fact, we managed to reproduce the famous fresco “Battaglia di porta Camollia” (by Giorgio Vasari) on a pure silver 999/°° K-OVER. The artist chased what happened during the night of the 26th of January 1554: the attack of one of the Sienese forts, near Porta Camollia, which marked the beginning of the war between Siena and Florence.
The cover has been completely handcrafted by Giuliano Foglia, a Florentine master goldsmith. The production process took several months and the techniques used are overhang and chasing. The core value of the product is given by its artistic perfection. Indeed, the artist worked a single piece of silver and the complexity of the task was increased by the fact that the reverse side is missing. It is also important to underline the great attention in chiseling human bodies. In the future, it will be hard to find such a talented artist.
This masterpiece has been exposed at Four Season (2019, Florence), Cannes Yachting Festival (2019, Cannes) and Origin (2019, Milan).
Giuliano Foglia was born in 1947 in Florence. In the ‘60s, despite his young age, Giuliano started working with his father in the family’s workshop. There, he learned how to design, overhang and chisel. During his long career he realized Madonne, eighteenth-century scenes and fountains. His masterpieces are Calice of the Saint Galgano and the Cups for San Marino Grand Prix (F1). Thanks to his lifelong experience he is now considered to be one of the best chisels in Italy. He has been recently working with K-Over for the project Works of Art.
