The traditional facade of the shop provides a great frame for the small wooden gems on display. Pleasant interaction with Giancarlo, with a twist of humor. Beautiful wooden pieces of art, excellent craftmanship.

This is a tiny shop on one of the thoroughfares to the centre of Cortona..I was immediately attracted by the beautiful wood sculptures on display. Giancarlo is an absolute enthusiast for his work and his family history in this business.

A very gifted craftsman. All of his creations are made with tools he made himself. Nice variety to choose from.

Giancarlo opened his shop during his lunch time after seeing us looking through the shop window. What a fantastic visit we had, charming, enthusiastic artist who was willing to share the design and production process with us. It naturally resulted in us buying three very...More

Stumbled upon this shop in a back street of Cortona. Lots of brilliant, hand-crafted articles. Two couples - we bought two articles and could have bought many more. Very high level of craftsmanship, works of art. In an age where everything is mass-produced, these are...More
