In Paderno Dugnano, a little city close to Milan, Italy, there is a pink-walled factory. This, in such a low-key area, is where the trophy is made.
The golden original, property of FIFA and rarely exhibited, was designed in 1970 by artist Silvio Gazzaniga, winning the international contest for the new World Cup trophy.
Every four years, a brass copy of the trophy is provided and handed to the football federation of the winning side.
The pictures below show different stages of foundry ,treatment, chiseling and polishing the trophy undergoes before it could be handed over to FIFA.
