Absorbed in her delicate task, Maddalena Forenza bends over her workbench in her familys historic studio, touching up a minute detail in the stained-glass panel before her. She explains that the pigments she is mixing have to be carefully gauged in order to create the ideal colour tones that will be enhanced as the lights passes through the window when it is set in its final position. This means she must also study the movement of the sun in situ and the quality of the light exposure. Subsequently, the stained glass may need three or even four firings to get every detail right. Its a fine science, perfected by her forefathers, Francesco Moretti and Ludovico Caselli, who founded the Studio Moretti Caselli in Perugia in 1860.
