About us

The building that houses the Zecchi store, as shown by the fresco on its façade, is part of the historic seat of the ancient Studio Fiorentino, the first University of Florence (dated 1348) that gave the street its current name. The paint store - located in this street for centuries - has always been an important reference point for Florentine artisans and painters. Firm Zecchi - which took over the business in the fifties - on the base of the fourteenth-century Cennino Cennini’s treatise Il Libro Dell’Arte, has succeeded in finding, reviving or reproducing all the colours and materials used by pre-Renaissance and Renaissance painters. The major Florentine works of art - but also some of the most important international art masterpieces - have been restored with the help of Zecchi’s products.

In the heart of Florence, just a few steps from the Duomo, professional and amateur artists from all over the world can find at Zecchi’s supplies for their art and a place where a continuous exchange of ideas enables the store’s staff to keep pace with the times and satisfy in the best possible way all customers’ requirements.
