The work

The reproduction of this fresco on Amalfi paper is particularly exciting, as the watermark of the water-based paper makes Giotto's drawing almost alive and makes it shine in a particular way. The particular message of the painting makes it usable in any room of the house or office. It is a sign of great trust and openness towards the world, a particular message from the Saint. It is said that after having received an answer to his question whether to continue preaching the good news or retire to private life:

"He came to a place where a large flock of birds of various kinds had gathered together. When the saint of God saw them, he quickly ran to the spot and greeted them as if they were endowed with reason..."

"He approached them and urged them to listen to the word of God, saying: 'O birds, my brothers, you have a great obligation to praise your Creator, who has clothed you with feathers and given you wings to fly with air pure and takes care of you without any concern on your part. '... The birds showed their joy in a remarkable way: they began to stretch their necks, spread their wings, open their beaks and look at it attentively.

"He passed through their flock with an extraordinary fervor of spirit, touching them with his robe. Yet none of them moved from the spot where the man of God made the sign of the cross and gave them permission to leave; then they flew away all together. His companions waiting on the road saw all these things. When he returned to them, that pure and simple man began to accuse himself of negligence because he had not preached to the birds before."

How reproductions are made

The craftsmen of Trizio Editore make a reproduction of this subject with a unique mechanism . The image is in fact printed several times as a test, until the correct combination of color tones is found. Finally, a professional 12-color inkjet printer creates a perfect copy, which is double-checked by hand and left to dry in protected environments. The artisans spread a natural fixative to preserve the shine and sharpness of the image and package the product entirely by hand.

Appreciated and used today by true connoisseurs of quality, fine papers or pictorial canvases have an ancient tradition. Symbol of Made in Italy recognized throughout the world, these extremely refined prints represent priceless subjects that come to life in a new light.

When printing is carried out, it passes to drying which in protected environments and with precise temperature and humidity helps the colors to remain vivid and full-bodied. The following fixing serves to keep the colors as just done forever. In fact, the fixer comes directly into contact with the surface and creates a real physical barrier between the colors and dust or bad weather.

The choice of frames is then a delicate and precise design step . Beech, maple or cherry, each with its own peculiarities and colours. With natural elements, we have special frames with incredible brilliance and lightness.
The matching of the frames is clearly done depending on the subject. To help us in the choice, art experts and painting masters carry out tests and tell us which choice to make.
All reproductions are chosen and followed by our Italian artisans.
