The Colozzi dynasty as stonemasons goes back to at least 1639, the year when Piero de’ Medici thanked Colozzo Colozzi for works done. In 1965, in fact, a stone mantelpiece was found carrying the thanks of Piero de’ Medici to Colozzo Colozzi; the find is dated 1639, since that time for centuries the family handed down the trade of stonemason. Now Umberto Colozzi and his son Marcello are the progeny of this dynasty and maintain alive the tradition of work done with the same criteria of the past, when the trade guiles and the secrets were handed down from father to son.
