Toni has always lived near the woods spending many years there with his father. He began to sculpt in 1984 to satisfy a personal drive.
The forest is a place of creation, where the trees stretch their roots and become a miraculous bridge between heaven and earth. His art is a journey and represents a bridge by which we can also go into the woods and breathe the sky.

Italy, Pove Del GrappaNa gjeni ketu
Pove del Grappa started life possibly as a quarrying town for the ancient roads in this mountainous area of north east Italy. It lies at the south eastern entrance to the pass through the pre-Alpes to Valsugana, that is also the name of the road today, one that has been travelled by great historical names on their route from Venice to the Holy Roman Empire.
Pove also sits at the western base of the Grappa mastiff, and is on many walking trails through this historic, forested and much embattled region.
