Something more about Anima del Bosco

"Anima del Bosco" is, of course, an Italian name...We can traslate it in English into "Soul of the Forest".
But why I've called my Lab "Anima del Bosco"? Sand, fire, water: as a result of the fusion of these elements, GLASS is obtained...Glass, the secret soul of the forest!
I'm Anna ad the history of the glass, is tightly connetted to the story of my mother's family.
I was only a little girl when my aunt Mary, in the evening, used to tell me a lot of old stories...But these were not fairy tales! Aunt Mary's stories were about the history of glass and the very ancient Glassmakers Families.

The brightness of the glass, has always fascinated me, and, predictably, captured me.
Maybe it's because working with glass, reminds me to those magic tales, and bring me back to my childhood, when I saw several times, in my aunt's eyes the pride to belonging to a millenary and important history!
My mother's grandmother was Metilde Bormioli. Metilde Bormioli was born and lived in Altare, a small village of the Italian region called Liguria.
If you don't know the importance of Altare in the history of the Glass Art, check on Internet! You will found a lot of interesting things!
Bormioli's Family , with other families, always connected to the Glass Art, began to take possession of the Techincal Foundatios of the Art Glass around the year 1000. Just at that time, in the small village of Altare, was created one of the most important Glass Makers community in the Europe!
Even today, "Altare" and "Bormioli", are synonyms of Glass.

Our Lab is located in Cairo Montenotte, a small Medieval town, in the same territorial reality of Altare. To be exact, Cairo Montenotte is a few miles from Altare.

For about three years Claudia works with me in Anima del Bosco. She approcheated with great interest to the glass engraving. The union of our stiles, our personal preferences and different sensitivities, allow us to have always new creative ideas!

Is it possible to request another personalization instead of the Variation that you offered?

The personalization is our job, our strenght and our dedication.

We'll be careful to indicate these information. But if you still have doubts, please, send us a message or contact us at:

We have a lot of articles completely custumizable. You can found them reading the description. If you want, we can also send a grafic project before engraving your artifact! Please, send us a message or contact us at:

Why do you have the need to understand if my custumized order is doable?

Well, that's a good question! Let us explain this point to you.
We can engrave a lot of different font, drawings, we can realize portraits starting from a pictures...We can do a lot of things.

But some drawings, some people, some logos and symbols are subject to copyright.
We cant't and we don't want to violate copyrights and rights of publicity.

In addiction, for our choice, we prefer to avoid engraving subjects markedly political and religious themed.
Thank you!

Do you work only with glass?

We work with glass, crystal and mirrors.
At this time we prefer to avoid engraving other things, thank you!

Can I ask a red, a yellow, or an other colour engraving?

No, we are sorry but you can't. As a result of the work of the diamond burr on glass, the engraving is always white.
If you like brilliant colours, you can choose a coloured glass! The contrast between the colour of the glass, and the white of the engraving is amazing!
