The Man Behind the Famous Giuseppe Armani Collectibles
Giuseppe Armani was born in Calci, Italy in 1935 and began to show an inordinate talent for drawing at a very young age.

As his talent flourished he realized that by expressing his artistic talent in sculpture, it allowed him to create art in three dimensional form. He was able to express various human emotions through the use of sculpture and gave an almost life-like look to his creations.

Famous Finishes Used In the Creation of Giuseppe Armani Collectibles
“M” Factor in Guiseppe Armani Items
One unique factor that sets fine Armani collectibles apart from other famous collections is the use of different finishes to make famous Armani works more instantly recognizable. One famous finish used in the creation of exceptional Armani collectibles is a metallic finish known as the “M” finish. This is a bronzed finish that gives the finished sculpture a very elegant and classical look. Used on very few Armani sculptures, when this finish is noticed on an Armani sculpture it makes the sculpture immediately recognizable as an Armani.
“P” Finish in Giuseppe Armani Items
Another of Giuseppe Armani’s famous finishes is the “P” finish, or light pastel finish in which the colors are expertly blended together to create a calm feeling when one views the sculpture that highlights this unique finish.
“T” Finish in Giuseppe Armani Items
Another finish unique to Giuseppe Armani collectibles is a “T” finish which features a Terra-Cotta look. Clay used to create these three dimensional works of art begins as gray colored clay, and when it is fired it takes on a warm reddish hue which makes Armani sculptures made with it recognizable as original Armani sculptures.
“L” & “F” Finishes in Giuseppe Armani Items
Another unique finish used in the creation of fine Giuseppe Armani collectibles is a luxury finish known as the “L” finish. This gives a piece a soft glossy finish when combined with pastels, creating a luxurious piece of art that can be displayed along with virtually any home decor scheme. The famous “F” finish is used for the flesh colored areas of the pieces, which are generally dominant in some of the sculptures.
