Leone Cornici

Tuscany, Italy

Wood Sculptor

Founded by Massimiliano Sernissi (called Leone) with daughters Simona and Valentina, Leone is one of the most important restoration workshops in Florence, frequented by collectors, antique dealers and museums. Leone specializes also in making frames and mirrors that are entirely hand crafted using techniques known since the 14th century and gilded with a gouache finish in pure gold. The most important museums in the world, among which the MET in New York, the Uffizi in Florence and the Hermitage in Saint Petersburg, display art framed in pieces made or restored by Leone.
