With decades of experience, I wanted to build a company that didn’t just value the price of artwork or its physical appearance but truly understood its intangible value. My vision was to develop a team dedicated to reviving beloved pieces, whispering back their stories, and ensuring they could be cherished again.

Our online valuation program makes getting an appraisal easier than ever. Services also include art handling and transportation, window treatments, painting and refinishing, cabinet refurbishing/installation, and exterior repairs, all in an effort to meet the diverse needs of clients.

Manzi has expanded to become one of the most trusted restoration companies in New England for insurance casualty loss claims, according to leading insurance companies, adjusters, disaster service providers, national moving companies, and the design trade community.

So, whether you have a dusty painting in the attic or a family heirloom yearning for some TLC, don’t hesitate to reach out. We’d love to hear your story and see how we can help your treasured pieces continue to bring joy for years to come.

What is your favorite city? Boston is the Hub for many reasons: history, education, sports, and biotech, but Boston is also a rapidly growing mecca for a diverse design community. Fueled by a passion for art and for Boston, we carved our niche in the local art scene. We focus on what we do best: meticulous appraisals and expert restorations for everything from paintings to furniture and beyond.

What was your proudest moment? I am particularly proud of the fact that in just three short years, we’ve gone from a small team to a powerhouse of experience, boasting over 100 years of combined experience. We’ve expanded beyond Boston, serving clients across the country and even internationally. But one thing remains the same: our unwavering commitment to quality and service. This journey has been an absolute thrill, and it’s not over yet! We’re excited to see what the future holds, to continue growing, and to help even more people connect with the irreplaceable value of their past.

Do you have a coveted item? My grandfather, Anthony Guidi, was a young Marine during World War II and a recipient of two Purple Hearts. He memorialized in his field diary the importance of the turning point of the war in the Pacific. My grandfather details in his diary how many destroyers, battleships, and planes were downed by the enemy, and also the beautiful destruction of war amongst men, sometimes boys. He also wrote about the beautiful sights of palm trees and flowers and enjoying refreshing coconut water. In the middle of chaos and mayhem, he found peaceful images.
