ROOT OF OUR SUCCESS
Ancient Giuseppe Di Giacomo’s foundry was born by the courageous intuition of the founder Giuseppe that, before first world war, decided to improve his long experience gained in the workshop where he worked first as assistant and after substituting his father.
Differences of opinions on the job with the chief where increased.
Faithful to the teachings of his father and mindful in confront of innovation , Giuseppe decided to do the great step.
Where difficult years, because He left the certain to bring something to eat at home, so he had to face many discontent, but remained faithful to his idea that art can’t compromise.
Often he repeated: “we will eat the ecstatically expressions of who observes our artwork.”
The old friendship consolidated year by year with Vincenzo Gemito, surely let became his certainties.
His certainties strengthened when artists started to say that Di Giacomo did perfect sculptures.
This perfection was maintained by fallowing generations on both unique and multiple artwork.
When Vittorio was the Chief came in the foundry a young artist that asked to him to produce a multiple sculpture 2 meter tall. Vittorio was dumbfounded for a while because never where created in his foundary sculptures as the young artist requested.
Didn’t knowing him answered yes to know what the young man wonted to achieve.
The young artist was the master Mimmo Paladino that then bounded his name to the Ancient Giuseppe Di Giacomo’s foundry for many of his sculptures.
