La Cornice di Giulio e Thandar
The best framer in town
Giulio Lagetto started learning frame making in Nespoli in the Seventies and continued the work of his ‘maestro’ with his own frame shop which he opened along with Thandar, his cheerful wife.
As soon as you enter his atelier, you are instantly lost among wooden frame samples and the scent of glue.
If it is true that every pot has its lid, as the Italian saying goes, Giulio knows how to create the perfect frame for every photograph or painting.
He collaborates with many different craftsmen and can restore works of art as well. Giulio and Thandar can also find old prints or lithographs for you, or artwork by young or more established artists, with just one condition: that Giulio likes it!
