Each ring is designed to reflect a specific literary character. Like the stories that inspired them, Miglior Fabbro™ rings are classic. The designs are simple and the materials are of the highest quality. They are made to endure; to be passed down. Nothing is plated, nothing is fake.The Italian phrase Miglior Fabbro means "The Better Craftsman."
T.S. Eliot dedicated The Waste Land to his friend and editor Ezra Pound, calling him "il miglior fabbro". (Eliot actually borrowed the phrase from Dante, who used it first in the Divine Comedy.) There is a clear and longstanding parallel between the writer and the craftsman--both are smiths, whose skill lies in creating a unified work of art out of raw material, whether that material is the written word or molten gold.Miglior Fabbro™ is dedicated to empowering a new generation of readers.
Underlying the very concept of Miglior Fabbro™ is the belief that literature enhances reality; glittering even in darkness and illuminating the beauty in everyday life. Reading stimulates the imagination, opens vistas onto far-flung places, creates opportunities get swept away, or perhaps to find yourself. For many children and young adults, literature offers a diversity that their neighborhood does not. Tragically, even as basic literacy rates have risen, literary reading is in steep decline--a growing national concern with serious implications in civic, social, cultural, and economic spheres.
To help ensure the future of literary culture, 10% of all Miglior Fabbro™ profits go to Reading Is Fundamental, a national literacy organization that provides books and resources to those in need.
