Since 1990 Fabio Bardini, of Florentine Renaissance Masonry, has been offering consulting, design and masonry contractor services for clients in the Boston area, Massachusetts and New England. Born and raised in Florence Italy, Fabio attended the Istituto d'Arte di Firenze and Palazzo Spinelli Design School where he studied geometry, drawing, painting, art forms and architectural history from the Egyptian, Greek and Roman era to the Renaissance period. Fabio's in depth knowledge and meticulous selection of material, paired with sound, time-proven Old World construction methods, results in masonry work built for quality and durability far outperforming current industry standards. Says Fabio, "What intrigues me about stonework is the simplicity of the tools; a hammer and chisel, a trowel; ancient tools virtually unchanged through the ages. It is the individual vision and skills which defines the beauty, quality and ultimate outcome of a project".

Vallejo, CA 94590
For The Swan Company owner, Carol Hanson, it all began in 1979 with the purchase of an 1876 Italianate row house on Golden Gate Avenue in San Francisco. "It had picture rail molding, but the only place that carried the appropriate hangers (Woolworth's) went out of business before I got there. So I said 'Ok, I can do this myself'. Figuring that I wasn’t the only person that would miss Woolworth, I ran a very tiny ad in Victorian Homes Magazine. That describes the birth of the 'Picture Hanging Paraphernalia'. What came next was the picture rail molding. In 1989, we began construction of a new old house using mostly architectural salvage. That’s when I stumbled on 'Gesso' picture rail molding. By some miracle I found enough at a salvage yard to do our entire house. But I was in love with it and wanted to share it with others. I used scrap pieces on my website to display my picture rail hooks. Big mistake…as people thought I had it for sale, and I ended up disappointing a lot of them. But that’s when my quest began to learn as much as I could about it. It led me on a long (and many times disappointing) road, but I just couldn’t get it out of my mind. So now, a mere 25 years later, I am able to offer the world authentic Gesso Picture Rail Molding. Yes the real thing…plaster on wood and, best of all, it’s made in the USA".
