Ever since the 16th Century, the fortress-town of Verona represented an important production centre for the supply of weapons to the Winged Lion armies of the "Serenissima" Republic of Venice. The development of a tradition in the Verona area for high quality, hand-crafted, weapons and related products has been attributed, with authority, to this period.
White arms manufactured in the city of the Scaligeri were used in important military actions. Examples of valued pieces are still kept in Museums and private collections and provide precise historical references of a period having as main characters the skilful artisans and artists of Verona, at the forefront in respect of other prestigious school in Italy.
The Master manufacturer L. NEGRINI & SON, first established in 1897, was one of the first to give a fundamental contribution to the affirmation of chivalrous arms and of the "noble art" in Italy.
In more recent times L. NEGRINI & SON has been official supplier of the Royal Italian Army, the Royal Italian Navy and the Italian Armed Forces. Following the second World War, thanks to its ever increasing quality of production of white arms and fencing equipment and the genial and learned contribution of Angelo Negrini, L. NEGRINI & SON achieved considerable success on the foreign markets.
The company today, NEGRINI FENCING LINE, under the direction of Paolo and Michele, is an attentive interpreter of the increasing needs of the world markets, paying careful attention to style and quality in its production. Particular care is taken to guarantee the continuation of a prestigious tradition at the service of modern fencing.
