MALLEUS MARTIALIS DI RODOLFO TANARA
The Art of “Spadai” lives again in Florence from the meeting of craftmanship and design.
This is Malleus Martialis.
Malleus Martialis recovers the ancient art of swordsmithing, whose tracks are in original findings, figurative and plastic art, illuminated manuscripts and in the ancient european swordmanship treatises, in order to give the sword a new function in our time.
THE LION AND HIS HEART
Malleus Martialis project starts in Florence. The founder Rodolfo Tanara has the chance to begin in a tiny workshop along the ancient walls, in the historic district of Santo Spirito.
Rodolfo decides to move in a new workshop in the green hills of Impruneta, near Florence, and there he meets Commander Sampo, a fluffy and talkative alley cat.
THE ELEPHANT CARRYING A TOWER
Eleonora Rebecchi, today Creative Director and Sales Manager, joins Malleus Martialis. Before starting as a sword designer, she graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna.
