Marco Ferreri, architect and designer, he has been living and working in Milan since 1984 and, as well as working in industrial design, he is also engaged in architecture, graphics and installations.
He has held lectures at universities in Italy and abroad. He teaches at the Accademia di Brera in Milan and is contract professor at the Politecnico of Milan.
The Ferro & Fuoco line of hand forged fire tools comes from a labor of love. Designer Marco Ferreri (Italian, born 1958), tells of a walk in a beautiful valley in Italy.
He came upon a small village where the whole community operated a five hundred year old water –powered hammer run to cut and refashion old pieces of railroad track to make shovels and hoes for the village.
Marco Ferreri was so inspired by the devotion and determination of the ageing blacksmiths and the life stories told through the unique implements they made that he designed these unique fire tools which could be created by the same blacksmiths using hand forged recycled track and the old water wheel.
Thus the birth of these hand forged beautiful fire tools was born and Ameico is very proud to sell them for the private home.
