The walnut wood, that characterizes its aesthetic appearance, is particulary valuable. It is defined canaletto due to its the internal channels that carry chlorophyll. It is characterized by its unique chocolate color, sometimes blended with purple streaks. The choices of its veins and flames are not accidental, they're carefully selected to mix and embrace the paths and parables offered by nature itself. The result is the harmony and the beauty, that only wood can provide, always different and unique.

The manufacturing

Every radiofonografo is an unique handwork, but at its origin there is a manufacturing process of extreme precision, with buttons and chassis made by CNC milling machines, a stand melted in a single piece from a sand mould and then painted individually and with the utmost care. The capable hands of our artisans turn semifinished pro- ducts into truly unique products. Wood panels sanding, components assembly, stand finishing and silk screen printing are all processes allowing the italian craftsman- ship tradition to make each radiofonografo unique.
