Nativity set – Stables, villages and accessories for Nativity set – Crucifixes – Angels – Religious Statues and figures – Characters and scenes of Life of Christ

Active since 1908, the Fontanini company keeping to the old tradition of Lucchesi figurine designer now produce subjects of unique expression and accurately modelled. Generations devoted to the creation of nativity sets and different figures, marked by a plasticity played on the intensity of faces and the of movement and details. Nativity set figurines and angels are evidence of this type of creation : each piece is hand painted, of different sizes from few centimetres to big dimensions, are symbol of happiness and sweetness, bearing a message of peace and indicating a brotherly friendship.

The idea for the development of a new product is the result of a cooperation between the company, the sculptors and their distributors in national and international markets.

Once the subject to develop has been decided , the Company agrees with the sculptor the general characteristics and dimensions of the figure, leaving the artist free to develop the model required according to his own inspiration. An artist who works free to express himself will always offer the best of himself.

Once the model has been made, the metal mold is created which, before going into production, is cleverly chiselled to enhance all the details.

Subsequently we proceed to the "mass production" of the figure. Most of the products are made of P.V.C., polymer prepared on rigoruos technical indications of the company, unique for its plasticity that allows to capture all the details of the original figure. At the same time it is extremely resistant to scratches or cracks due to accidental falls.

Once the "unfinished" products have been produced, they are distributed to the artisans’ homes for decoration, a process entirely handmade . This is the most fascinating phase of production: in the small villages of the Lucchese hills the historical tradition bound to the "painting of the figurines" is very much alive.

After decoration, the products are returned to the factory where they are checked and packaged carefully ready to be shipped all over the world.
