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.
