Festa del bocolo 07/04/2016
According to legend, this tradition (meaning rosebud festival) originated in the 8th century, when a Venetian of low social standing is said to have fallen in love with a noblewoman. In order to win her father's approval, he became involved in a distant war. He was mortally wounded in battle, but managed to pluck a rose from a nearby rosebush for his loved one. A companion was entrusted with returning the blood-stained rose to his lover, who was found dead the day after she received those bad news. That day was April the 25th. So every year in this day men in Venice traditionally give their lovers a single rosebud as a sign of love. Ok ok, this model shows a lot of roses but this isn't a common Venetian, he is Giacomo Casanova in person, that's why he' got so many flowers to give away! In this tribute to one of the most beautiful cities in the world, I've hidden references to other three famous sons of Venice: the painters Canaletto ("il molo verso la riva degli Schiavoni" on the back) and Tiziano Vecellio ("La flora" on the shirt) and the traveller Marco Polo, whose family heraldic symbol is painted on the trousers.

Rackham lives on 26/11/2015
Fifteen years have elapsed since the day I painted my first Rackham wolfen. Such a blast! The quality and originality of the scuplts were a pleasure both for the eyes and for our brush tips. Their unique taste and style had no match for the years to come. Even today that R glorious reign is long gone, many collectors around the world still crave for these fine miniatures. On our part, we will keep giving them life and colours as best as we can. Me and Ste painted 660 Rackham jewels in these 15 years; if you share our same love, why not helping us to do even better in the years to come :) ?

Le muse inquietanti 06/08/2013
I had this project waiting for long time and finally I managed to complete it. I've always been fascinated by Giorgio de Chirico paintings, they emanate an aura of mistery and unease; time and space trasgress their nature so that the observer can watch reality through a pair of metaphysical goggles. Essential lines and geometric shapes helped me in the creation process, as these were my first attempts in sculpting. On the other hand, supernatural perspective and lighting were hard to reproduce and even harder to photograph. I'm glad I was struck by this idea of 3D reproduction of art masterworks, it's a great way to elevate our hobby to pure art, watching miniatures under a different eye. So what's next? Maybe a Dalì...
