copertinalibroTo celebrate the 100th anniversary of its foundation (1910-2010), the National Proof House in Gardone Val Trompia – Brescia, Italy - has decided to publish a book for all the enthusiasts and professionals of this sector. The work consists of 170 pages in an elegant 27x27 cm format with numerous photographs, tables and drawings. It is the result of the researches carried out and coordinated by Dr. Massimo Pagani, an expert in the field, assisted by architect Carlo Camarlinghi, who is the editor of the Firearms Museum in Gardone Val Trompia. The book is essentially composed of two parts. The first part consists of historical essays and information about the various institutional activities of the National Proof House. The second part lists all the legislation affecting the National Proof House from its foundation to the present day, the current proof marks of the various Proof Houses in the world, and, for the first time, a list of all the Italian weapon manufacturers, and their trademarks from the 1950s to present. The text, both in Italian and English, is published in two graphics solutions: one is an off-market "showcase" version, with hardcover and wrapper; the other is a softcover "consultation version" which will be put on the market. The book will be available around November at the price of € 36.00 + postage. Requests for reservations can be sent to the National Proof House only via email or fax.
