One of our more memorable projects (because of its size and meaning) that we have carried out, must be the “Tree of Charity”.
In May 2000 we were approached and commissioned to create a work of art to represent the concept of “Charity”.
As the starting point we took a tree as the subject, precisely an “Ash tree”, synonymous of Charity.
The project started from the true reproduction of an actual ash tree, growing at Ameno, a very pleasant village on Lake Orta in northern Italy.
With the method of sand casting we were able to make a realistic hollow copy, which we then cast in a single pouring of bronze, of the dimension of over six metres long.
The assembly of the completed opera, weighing 2,000KG (including: branches, leaves and high-reliefs to the height of two metres), took place in the town of Turin.
The project was successfully carried out within a period of 3months, from the start date of the 17th of May 2000.
To complement our artistic foundry, we also operate in the environmental sector. We deal with the
management of non-hazardous waste, including recovery, transport and disposal.
Pintonfond environmental services is able to recover, treat and dispose of all non-hazardous waste in
collaboration with specialized companies in the waste sector.
We operate throughout northern Italy according to the regulations in force for the correct disposal of
waste in respect to the environment.
