The experience gained by working in Italy and abroad, at first researching the painting tradition of the ancient schools of the Tuscan artist's studios (Florence, Lucca, Pisa), gets more intense in other Italian cities: Rome, Naples, Milan... and abroad: Cannes and Paris. Pirrò would establish a deep bond with Paris as he married a Parisian girl. Though Pirrò began his career as a canvas painter, above all a landscape painter, after a short while he turned to paint Romantic-style figures. He became best friend with painter Roberto Barsuglia (an Impressionist painter). The two would often work together and, while at the Academy, they would work with Professor Antonio Vignocchi, a painter of great renown.

In 1998, Pirrò opened his own firm, which over the years would even meet the favour of the Fine Arts Service, and employed staff with a background in hand-made decorative painting, redolent of bygone eras (frescoes). The pictorial background of such decorations is not regarded as a fleeting fashion… but as the concept of a work designed to last…. It is about respecting the legacy of the decorative tradition. Even now, Messrs we select materials and techniques that are as close as possible to the schools of the Renaissance studios. The working process deals with the restoration of frescoes and art applied to architecture and interior design: furniture, ironwork, masonry, etc. Furniture too is decorated as in the old times... gold leaf, aging patinas, small rose windows, acanthus, etc... Doors are decorated with hand-made painting methods. Experienced in the interpretation of styles to suit the project manager’s requirements.

Small and large painted decorations on walls, ceilings, with recovery of historical and artistic environments, with attention to detail in respect of general harmony of the place and its history. Creation for historical murals and names of houses on the exterior walls, perimeter walls and facades.

Patinas and/or glazing on interior and exterior grounds give a naturally aged look, which makes colour look deep and flowing, instead of dull, as new colours. The décor is extremely well finished, using traditional Tuscan techniques and looking for the right colour shades usually tend to be. Restoration is viewed as aiming to preserve the ancient uniqueness of a work, using non-invasive, perfectly reversible techniques ad materials. We works in the restoration and renovation of the walls, selecting the best technique based on each problem.
