The institutions that have commissioned work to us
Over 110 years
The plaque is the ideal gift for institutional meetings, a concrete symbol of an event or of a meeting to remember.
To commemorate this special occasion, Picchiani e Barlacchi puts at your disposal the mastery of our artists and sculptors and the heritage of the finest Florentine engravers, printers and artisans who have been creating unique works for over 110 years.
Thanks to our years of experience you have the security of giving a unique and precious object that honours those persons who receive it.
What will personalities and institutional offices think if you choose an object without any value or significance to celebrate your special occasion?
The widespread use of substandard materials and rough and ready materials conditions the final result which can in fact turn out to be quite mediocre, strongly impacting on the image of the company and undermining the event that is being organised.
The possible risk when choosing a cheap and poor quality plaque is seeing these objects thrown away after a few days and projecting a very damaging image of you and of your institution.
To give a recognition of prestige, invest in an object that lasts forever and increases in value over time. For others it will be an honour to receive your plaque and to show it off with pride.
Since 1902, Picchiani e Barlacchi has been creating unique plaques according to the family tradition, guaranteeing an impeccable result that exceeds even the most stringent of expectations.
The engravers, designers, printers, galvanic finishers and many other professionals work unceasingly raw materials to give you a perfect plate for your occasion.
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:

Since the foundation of Picchiani e Barlacchi in 1902 more than 110 years have passed: over a century of culture and art embodied in medals that recall indelible events at local, national and international levels.
From anniversaries to institutional occasions, from the celebration of corporate goals to sporting events, even including news events: in the endless archive of our historical company with a strictly family tradition we recognise in metal the features that have marked the history of our country.
Each new edition entails, once the design and the sketch have been approved, approximately 30 days of actual work to give you an excellent product that reflects in the best possible way the value of the order that it represents.
How much can an object of such low quality cost you in terms of reputation towards the people you will be giving it to?
The economic savings are often evident in the coarse finishes, in the defects of minting and in the lack of resistance as well as the risk of embarrassment and diminishing the meaning of the occasion being celebrated.
All the Picchiani e Barlacchi works are precious recognitions, true works of art. To take advantage of our centuries-old professionalism, call us now and explain your requirements to us.
In any case, as insurance, you have our 100% satisfaction personal guarantee so if the plaque were to present even a tiny defect, it would be discarded and reproduced from scratch.
