    This is just an amazing shop close to the Pantheon. These charming items are the result of a patient manual labor - made of pinewood - designed and created by the Bortolucci family - Francesco, Matteo, Chiara, and Anna. The photos do not do justice to the great detail. For more than 60 years, three generations of Bartolucci's family are united by a common passion: the art of working wood. The firm Bartolucci started the enterprise producing accordions in 1936. Four brothers worked there: Leopoldo, Ernesto, Silvio and Matteo Bartolucci.
    After different productions (furniture, old fashioned furniture...), in 1981 Francesco, Chiara and Annamaria, Matteo's son and two daughters started the present production of wooden ware.

    Bartolucci is a store I fell in love with in Rome. I was always a huge fun of woodworking and I like to collect pieces from all over the world.
    All the pieces you see in the store are hand made. The prices are very reasonable and the quality of the pieces they sell is top notch. They have pieces for every budget, starting from 2 Euros (for a hand made and hand painted wood key chain) to 400 Euros.
    Since we were in Rome right before Christmas, I purchased few Christmas tree ornaments from the store. I also purchased a Pinocchio wood figurine (9 Euros) that I proudly display on one of the book shelves in my office.

    What to buy: Pinocchio figurine and other hand made wood pieces

    What to pay: anywhere from 2 Euros up

    Bartolucci: Pinocchio and wooden gifts for children

    Bartolucci family has been creating wooden toys and puppets since years. They have several shops entire Italy. One of them is in Rome, on the way of Phanteon. I bought a puppet of Pinocchio and a board that is written my niece's name on it.

    Wooden art is a little bit expensive actually. Cause it's handmade. But there are plenty of options to buy as you can see at photos. So you can find something for your budget too. It exactly makes your children happy.

    What to buy: Pinocchio, rabbit-clocks, key-holders, cat-lamps, spring guns, rocking horses, old cars and puppets... everything exclusively of wood and handmade.

    What to pay: Depends on what you want to buy and size of wooden gift. For example, a gift that i bought for my niece was a 15cm wooden board and for 7 euro.

    with Pinoccio on Bartolucci

    The firm Bartolucci started the enterprise producing accordions in 1936 . Four brothers worked there: Leopoldo, Ernesto, Silvio and Matteo Bartolucci.
    After different productions (furniture, old fashioned furniture...), in 1981 Francesco, Chiara and Annamaria, Matteo's son and two daughters started the present production of wooden ware.
    It is more than 60 years that three generations of Bartolucci's family are united by a common passion: the art of working wood.
    An evolution of style and personality respecting tradition.

    Es la jugueteria mas bonita en la que he estado en mi vida. Comenzaron en 1936 como negocio familiar y actualmente continuan con la tradicion familiar. La jugueteria es preciosa y merece la pena darse una vuelta.

    What to buy: Toys made of wood.
