La Ricerca

Bookbinding

"Ours is a continuous "search" for quality, originality and craftsmanship to infuse into our products."


The workshop "La Ricerca" opened in 1992 thanks to Alessandro Scipioni's mother, who now carries on the family business together with his father Italo. Born as a bookbindery, later the business specialized in particular in the creation of leather, hide and paper articles, all marbled and worked entirely by hand. Marbling is a technique of chromatic decoration on paper, fabric or leather that in some motifs imitates a marble surface by reproducing the patches of color. It consists of placing the material on the surface of a bath specially prepared by the craftsman. In this way, the pattern is formed thanks to the properties of the colors that float and expand on the liquid in the bath. Among the many objects made by "La Ricerca" are address books, key rings, notebooks, frames, sketchbooks, masks – perfect for a high-quality handmade souvenir.
