Antonino's ''Girasoli Sulla Baia'' Intarsia
''Girasoli Sulla Baia,'' this beautiful scene's name, is Italian for ''Sunflowers On The Bay.'' Antonino crafts each intarsia, uno alla volta, before finishing it with many coats of a glistening lacquer. This signed wooden wall art treasure is intended to be passed from generation to generation. This intarsia measures 9 inches by 7 inches with a hook for hanging. Handcrafted exclusively for Uno Alla Volta, from the heart and hands of the artisan.

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.
