The craftsman Mimmo Provenzano is partly behind Italy's renown as a land of gorgeous handmade pipes. Romeo Domenico (known as "Mimmo") is an extremely talented and passionate pipe maker. Since 2009, he has been making unique creations in his Maglie-based workshop (Apulia region). Whether they are made out of briar or morta (bog-wood), each one of his inventions is a real treasure for smokers. Moreover, numerous pipe makers buy briar wood from Mimmo, since he sells briar of an extremely high quality. Indeed, Mimmo Provenzano owns a sawmill that specializes in finding the most beautiful briars in the world!
