    The celebrated foundry of Chiurazzi foundry (founded in 1870) was established by Professor Masulli earlier in the Century. Masulli created a foundry where Antique works of art were reproduced to the highest standard, works which rapidly achieved popularity in Italy and abroad. Chiurazzi was a pupil of Masulli and at his death re-established the disbanded foundry under a new name and in a new location.
