From the Inside Flap:

Giancarlo began his engraving career at Beretta as an apprentice during the summer of 1960 at the age of 13. His father and uncles also worked for Beretta and young Giancarlo studied under the Master Engraver Tononcelli for three years. During 1979, he became a completely independent engraver, able to take commissions from customers directly.Stefano followed somewhat in his father's footsteps, but initially wanted to be an artist, and attended the Caravaggio School of Art in Brescia to sharpen his drawing skills. During this period, he worked for his dad, learning to cut ornamentation, and it didn't hurt to be surrounded by other Master Engravers from Val Trompia. After an 8 month “apprenticeship program” for his dad, Stefano finished his first bulino game scene on a knife, and Studio Pedretti was born.
