Italy - a typical Italian hardware store

Italy has chains like Home Depot... but most

Italians

shop at their local hardware store.

Every village has a "negozio di ferramenta"

I wonder if they used to exist in the USA ... ?

This is the 'ferramenta' near my house ... 

Inside, it's packed, floor to ceiling with everything you could possibly need for your house.

 

The clerks wait at the counter to help you. Because these are family businesses, they have been doing this since they were children, and they seem to know everything.

 

You describe your project, and they'll find everything you need, tucked away in some angle, or on the top shelf.

And then explain how to do the project.

 

Doing some wiring?

They'll measure it out for you.


It's impossible to show the amount of stuff in here

It might seem chaotic, but everything is organized ...

... usually in wooden boxes lining the walls. A sample is attached to the front of the box.

 

There are all kinds of paints but Home Depot doesn't have this ... Mordente Noce

It's a black ashy powder mineral, sold by weight. You dissolve it in water and stain wood with it. After it dries, you cover with varnish. The most antique and beautiful way to stain furniture and why some antiques are so beautiful.

 

They'll do projects for you too.

at the work bench...

making keys...

or carpentry or masonry projects.

Nails by the kilogram...

Italian copper pans...

Need the perfect machette for your fields?

 

or some old world fittings and hardware?

 

Visit your local 'ferramenta' in Italy,

They'll take good care of you!

 

Thanks for joining me !!! James
