Hand decorated paper and bookbinding

Giulio Giannini & Figlio bookbinding

In Piazza Pitti, in the heart of historic Florence, Giulio Giannini e Figlio proudly displays its origins in a living museum. Thanks to antique furnishings and tools, our workshop premises take the guest back in time  to 19th century Florence.


Visitors, students and family members who wish to become “artisans for a day" are welcome to visit and join their workshops, in English and Italian. They can learn marbled paper production methods and the technique of creating a  personalized book, including leather bookbinding, from start to finish.
