Le pipe del.... Presidente – Video-conference with Maestro Vincenzo Grenci In the series: La Scatola Magica:

Ready for an interesting presentation on very special pipes? These are made from a type of wood called “radica” from Serre and Agromonte, in Calabria. It is a long and very precise procedure, but the results are excellent. Our guest, Maestro Vincenzo Grenci, inherited his passion from his father Domenico. When he returned from the United States, where he had gone in search of fortune in the 1960s, he decided to open a workshop in his own region in Italy. He started a production of pipes of the highest quality using traditional artisan techniques, and that was much respected ... particularly by President Sandro Pertini, who was rarely parted from his. During a trip to England the President had replied to a journalist, when asked for his opinion on pipes, that English pipes were excellent, but those from Sila were so much better. Vincenzo remembers those words with great pride because the pipes from Sila, mentioned by President Pertini, were those made by his father Domenico and nowadays by himself.

Grenci pipes is still a family business, Vincenzo has been joined in his business by his children, the third generation Grenci.

We’ll have a chance to admire these beautiful Grenci pipes during Vincenzo’s presentation at The Magic Box, on Tuesday 8th June at 6 pm.

Looking forward to seeing you all.
