Footnotes

  • The celebrated carver Luigi Frullini (d.1897) was active during the latter half of the 19th century, producing, to critical acclaim, Renaissance revival furniture and objects from his Florentine workshop at 8 via Santa Caterina. He exhibited at the 1862 London International Exhibition and at the Paris Expositions Universelles of 1867 and 1878. Already known locally, his travels to London and Paris, beyond furthering his artistic growth, were undoubtedly important in increasing his client base. Indeed, in the years following the exhibitions, he obtained important commissions for the daughter of Queen Victoria, and for the daughter of the Grand duchess of Russia.
