The widespread use of substandard materials (such as plastic) and rough and ready processing conditions the final result that can in fact turn out to be quite mediocre, diminishing the image of the association you belong to as well as its authoritativeness.

Our values and our sense of belonging

Florence is the most famous city of art in the world, cradle of the Renaissance and still today a land rich in culture, tradition and craftsmanship.

Workers have always found fertile ground in this city to develop and promote excellence and professionalism and this was also the case for Picchiani e Barlacchi that since 1896 has continued its activity almost unaltered.

These have been our values since the official foundation of the company in 1902.

This is our philosophy; these are the values​that guide every stage of working of our products, from the conception of the design to the finishing and quality control.

We believe in tradition, on which our company is based.

For this reason we are against any form of improvisation: our products are not pieces of metal, but immortal objects to preserve an important memory over time and as such they must be created to a professional standard.

We believe in Made in Italy, a precious resource of our country envied throughout the rest of the world.

We despise any attempt at imitation and any form of homologation that degrades the history of our country, the creative scope of our artists and craftsmen and the excellence of our products.

We firmly believe in quality.

This is why we avoid standardising and flattening our products, even when the operation would have an economic advantage. In no case do we cut corners on attention to detail or the perfection of the final product.

Do you have any questions?

You will find all the answers here
How long does it take to receive my badge?
The working process, from the design of the project to the casting and finishing, requires the respecting of precise times. This is not a standardised process, but a true work that requires the mastery and meticulous attention of each person involved.

Once the design is approved, it takes approximately 30 days of actual work to provide you with an excellent badge that represents 100% the prestige of your association.

How much can a badge cost?
Some associations choose to purchase products with standardised manufacturing processes, commercial gadgets and plastic promotional accessories, where personalisation involves very few elements, never the project in its entirety.

How much can an object of such low quality in terms of reputation cost you when members of your organisation wear it on official occasions?

The economic savings are often evident in the coarse finishes, in the defects of minting and in the lack of resistance with the risk of diminishing the value of the symbol being worn as well as embarrassing your association.

All the Picchiani e Barlacchi items are true works of art that guarantee you a unique product, capable of perfectly transmitting the identity of your organisation. To take advantage of our centuries-old professionalism, call us now and explain your requirements to us.

How can I be sure of the end result?
To represent in the correct manner your association, the organisation you belong to or your professional order, we take care of all the details of the badge and the brooch at all stages of processing, reducing imperfections to almost zero.

In any case, by way of insurance, you have our 100% satisfaction personal guarantee, so if the trophy were to present even a tiny defect, it would be discarded and reproduced from scratch.
