Who We Are
Massimo Bonino began his activity in the restoration of antique furniture around 1977 in Turin (Piedmont), at one of the most important artisan workshops of that era, that of Mr. Giuseppe Primerano.
He works there making a baggage of experiences that will be useful when he moves to Lucca in 1982, where he opens his own Restoration Workshop, which progresses to having seven workers who work with him.
In 1990 he opened a shop in Via Pesciatina in Lucca, a high-flowing road that is about 2 km from the city walls.
The shop is called 'ARABA FENICE'; it is furnished with: mirrors, bronzes, porcelains, candlesticks, chandeliers, paintings, prints, watercolors, English Old Sheffield, clocks, fireplaces, glassware and various objects of particular taste, etc., through monthly trips to the most important European Antiquarian Fairs
