Wood is a versatile, varied and extremely suitable material to be “experimented” in the most particular shapes and combinations.
THE ART OF INLAY
The skill of our craftsmen is also evident in these unusual works, which recall an art now dormant with time, the one of inlay.

Entering the church of Santa Maria Maggiore in Città Alta is enougth and, looking at the Choir, observe the magnificent creations designed by Lorenzo Lotto. A small digression to underline these works, which request is now even more reduced, but a demostration of painstaking work, patience and dedication.
