Woodturning rendez vous - Rovato 2014


I'll write a better article about a woodturners meeting i had last week in Rovato,
precisely at "Scuola Ricchino" : http://www.scuolaricchino.org/
Unfortunatly i'm quite busy these days cleaning up my house from top to the botton...
I decided to put it on sell...and have quite a change in my life...

by the way, i want to show the work i brought with me for the exposition called: Cubo Vision
The only very one rule was to start with a wood cube of 15 cm..
that could be just a single species wood, or laminated wood or whatever...but a 15 cm Cube..

i put in my work some about me:
the layers i create in the wood, by using a steal weel brush mounted on a  drill,
it represented the stratigraphic investigation on wood that i'm doing when a piece of wood came to my hand.
I'm curious of what i got, how many years i could reckon on it, how it grow year by year..
i like a lot make myself comfortable and think what i can do by reading it....
I spent a couple of years studing Conservazione Beni Culturali in Ravenna,
with greater interest toward the Middle East and Indian subcontinent,
i made a couple of archeological mission with university too, one was in Suaza, in Val Cesana, Marche region, a Roman settlement, funny was i found a bone nut, rigged on the 2....
other was in Tharros, (Oristano),Punic Phoenician settlement...but necropolis was emptied, spoiled by what we called "tombaroli" ....graves thieves.

well..





i just like to show you a funny moment that i have at Rovato.

The guy with black shirt name: Luciano Molinari : http://www.molinariebanista.it/
Definetly you should pay a visit on his website...
And the other man name Gianni "Homo Faber", a really good friend of mine....
It's about a really good friulan grappa...Friuli Venezia Giulia it's a place that must be seen and taste if you came to Italy.

The pictures above have been made by a great man name Dario Fumagalli,
man it was really a pleasure! you don't know how much happy these pictures made me!!











                                  I'm bewitched by Luciano Molinari works and woods collections
     Behind me, the long hair guy,yeah...his name Michele Monaci,a really great segmented turner
