Near Italy's Florence, the family of Aldo Marsili runs a wonderful factory, with a finely honed craft of manufacturing awe-inspiring chess sets for over 30 years.

Aldo Marsili established the chess factory Italfama in 1976. Like many successful businesses, Italfama was started as a hobby. Aldo enjoyed playing chess as a young man and he also enjoyed working with his hands. He realized the business potential of his hobby when his first handmade chess set was quickly purchased by one of his friends and his second immediately suffered the same fate.

Aldo has worked very hard with his brother Paolo for 33 years, and during that time the chess collection has grown, including various lines: classical and artistic chess pieces of different designs and materials, faithful reproductions of historical and mythological battles, memorable characters. The pieces are played on inlaid wooden chess boards made of the most beautiful woods, rosewood, maple, mahogany, walnut.

Artist and engraver Aldo Marsili oversees the entire production process for the chess pieces, which uses classical method of wax casting, in the style of Benvenuto Cellini and all the other famous sculptors of the 15th and 16th century. Each piece is fashioned by hand, with gold finish or paint, sculptured or hand-carved.

In the third millennium, Italfama is considered one of the most prestigious and appreciated manufacturers of chess pieces and chess boards in the world. In the last two years two of Aldo's sons, Marco and Tommaso, have joined the factory, and, thanks to their care and innovative ideas new lines have been added with worldwide appreciation and success.

A real CHESS set in the house!

We are proud owners of a new metal chess set. The feel and balance are great, and look is even better. We’ve had plastic and marble, but this is by far the best. Just looking at the pieces on the board is a pleasure, but they’re ready for combat!

Beautiful chess pieces!

The quality of the chess pieces are wonderful. However, dinged this one star due to the packaging. The foam encasing was broken and many stray pieces were floating around in the box intermingled with the pieces.
