Roberto was practically born in a “smithy’s” workshop and in this laboratory he feels comfortable and it frees his creative force. From his father he inherited the skill in metalworking, but from the first experiments of functional sculpture he has developed his own artistic style through his innate feeling with the metal.
His sculptures have raw power, able to enhance the full force of the energy of the metal which make twists, tears and turns as if in the hands of a giant. And then deftly different finishes are applied. The result is harmonious and follows the philosophy of opposites as the lifeblood of the life process. The family has over 300 years of iron in the blood, and Roberto’s son is following in the family tradition of creativity and design in the workshop of Molvena.

Italy, MolvenaFIND IT HERE
Molvena is located in the north west of Veneto, on the border between the plain and the mountains, where the hills begin to roll out of the landscape and the environment is sweet. Maybe the name comes from the Latin "Multae venae", in reference to the many water ‘veins’ that cross, seeking a route across the plain below. It is located on the border with Marostica from which it separated in 1606 when it appointed its own city council. And it is characterized by three distinct "villages" - Molvena, Mure and Villa – as written in the Code A of the city of Vicenza.
