About Roberto Giovannini
Roberto Giovannini discovered his passion for wood craftsmanship in the artisan quarter of San Frediano in Florence, Italy: the essential techniques, manual skill and experience all began to take form in the prestigious Bartolozzi e Maioli Art Workshop.
In 1958, he opened his own workshop which, in a short time, became a reference point both for the customers and for others who wished to learn the art. And so this saw the birth of the school for training young woodcarvers, helping to progress new ideas and preserve the time-old tradition of wood carving.
Over the years, the workshop developed into a much larger enterprise, much appreciated for its creativity, flair and, above all, for its quality, becoming a reference point in Italy just as worldwide.
