The Manetti Gold Leaf Factory is the most famous in Italy and certainly famous around the world. The Manetti’s began their work with gold leaf manufacture and decoration in 16th-century Florence. Manetti products and expertise are used not only in restoration but also in the decoration of modern buildings and objects.
In New Zealand, at the moment, their gold leaves are being used to decorate the ceiling of the Bishop Selwyn Chapel at the Trinity Cathedral in Parnell – Auckland.
