The ovens by MVforni are built by Raffaele Vassallo aka  "Lello" (ex Ferrara builder).

Lello worked for Stefano's father for many years & was like as son to him.  After his passing, Lello & Stefano had a falling out and he decided to go out on his own. To this day, Lello carries a photo of Stefano's father in his wallet.

The Marra Forni are made by Cirigliano Forni.  Same internals, different exterior design.

I had a chance to test out one, granted it was the Gas model, but my shop, Pizza CS in Rockville MD, ultimately went with a Ferrara and we couldn't be happier.

Hey Larry- it's going really well, thanks.

I'd say the Cirigliano (or any oven) is worth testing, but for me, the mouth opening being quite large + the lower thermal mass worried me in regards to heat retention/wood usage.  I also wasn't a fan of the floor being made small bricks and their slight height variations.  My test pies were good, but I felt that there was too much lifting required at the end.  In the Ferrara when we're really cranking, I don't have to lift at all.

Additionally, in our specific space, the flue placement at the front of the oven would not have worked (as we had to line the oven flue up to use the existing roof penetration from the previous tenant's deck oven venting).   

We've been using less than 1 cord of kiln-dried oak per month in the Ferrara 130, being open 6 days/week.  It only takes about 2 hrs to be back up to temp in the mornings.
