Did you have a master?
Yes, I started working with my father, a restorer, when I was only 14 years old. He taught me everything I know. I met my partner Loredana 20 years ago, she’s a decorator, so we decided to work together opening our restoration workshop, where we also make furniture by lacquering and gilding.
How did the aviaries come about?
I have loved birds ever since I was a child, so I started to build small wooden aviaries to protect the birds of our garden from cold and rain. But these “tiny houses” got bigger every day. So I started decorating them, adding more and more details. Then a lady from Milan saw my aviaries at a fair and became my first client.
What’s so special about your aviaries?
Our aviaries are built and refined paying attention to the smallest details. They need to be extremely comfortable for the birds: inside them there are feeders, running water, lamps for lighting and heating. Each breed of bird has its own needs, just like humans.
Do you produce other items too?
Yes, but today we are mainly known for our aviaries. But in our workshop and showroom in Rimini you can find wooden birdhouses, feeders, doghouses, garden decorations, small jewels, lanterns, boxes and home decor pieces.
