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 aging 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.
