The term "Wrought iron" includes the concepts of hammered and notched cast iron. For many people, it becomes synonym of a kind of art which is tied to the past, or even an extinct art. In fact, this viewpoint is quietly limited and even so wrong, since in recent years for many artists and artisans the productions of Blacksmith have been known as rebirth and renewed interests.

This book refers to grill gates and gratings, which are traced back to a period from when unfortunately very few examples survived. After a short turning back to the classic and linear shapes, which are less attractive to the Blacksmith, the liberty style inaugurates a new season and makes the products of this material a big success. This volume is dedicated to Dr. Arch. Bruno Gonzato, whose love for the Blacksmith made his company, Italian Industry Arteferro SpA, become the undisputed leader around the whole world.
