Antonino's ''Girasoli Sulla Baia'' Intarsia
Our artisan, Antonino, first learned his craft from his uncle Vincenzo, more than 40 years ago. He spent many years as an apprentice learning the secrets of his trade, and mastering its techniques before gaining admission in 1979 to the Italian Chartered Institute of Artisans. Today, Antonino brings patience, passion and imagination to his beautiful works, crafted of a variety of woods: beech, rosewood, horse chestnut, orange, maple, lemon and ebony. He is forever inspired by his love of nature and animals, his beloved home town of Sorrento and its stunning views, its colorful alleyways and the romantic and fragrant lemon gardens.
