A lecture to discover a historical workshop transformed into a place that preserves, exhibits and promotes the art of boilermaking’s heritage.

‘Calderai’ are the craftsmen specialised in producing braziers, pans, pots and other household utensils. In particular, Officine Calderai, founded by Martinelli Venezia, was the workshop of Nino Ciminna, the oldest tinsmith on the street, and recognised by many as a master.
