Manoteca is a workshop that produces unique pieces of furniture, entirely handmade and treated with non-toxic paints. Our desire is to transform forgotten things into objects with a strong aesthetic sense, treating them as true works of art.

The assembly process doesn't only pursue the goal of good taste, but a way of communicating, in which each element, through the allegorical meaning attributed to it, wants to tell a story. In this way every object is transformed into a metaphor.

This for me represents the recovery of an identity, which passes through chosen objects, mainly related to the Emilia Romagna region, with it's soft shapes, colors and suffused lights: a renewed romance in what used to be. We love to give new life to pieces of our history.
