The other day, I speculated that maybe Gitzo tripods might be built in a factory in China. Wrong-O, carbon-fiber-breath. (Get the researcher in my office now.) They're handmade in Manfrotto's factory in Feltre, a picturesque hill town of some 8,000 families just south of the Dolomites in northeastern Italy.
Vincent Oliver of photo-i fame has a nice video factory tour at YouTube.
