Our roots

Paolo Fazzini( Pinin ) was born in 1985 in Premana, a mountain village at 1.000 meters above sea level located between Alta Valsassina and Alta Valvarrone.
After being orphaned, at the age of eleven he left for Venice where at the Bottega Paterna he learned the first notions of forging and processing steel.
At the age of sixteen he moved to Verona where he refined the art of sharpening and after so much wandering in 1942 he finally went back to Premana to carry on the production of scissors and sharpening activity still running today.

Pinin over the years

In 1964 his youngest son Fabio, after his father’s death, took over his work with the desire to experiment and “stand out” and he by registered the brand Due Spade (Two swords)

In 2001, Paolo Fazzini, the 30- year-old grandson and namesake of the founder, took over from his father the place at the head of the company He immediately felt the need for a change, an evolution. So he started to travel.

Pinin today

Since 2013, Maria Fazzini, Paolo’s younger sister, is also at his side. After observing and “breathing” from an early age the work of his father and older brother, she divides herself between technical processing and commercial office.
Her passion for foreign languages helped expand Pinin’s overseas sales network.

A brother and a sister who with passion combine past and present, craftsmanship and research.
