Wild wood

  • • Giorgio is a self-taught woodturner
  • • He studied Philosophy and Sculpture
  • • His favourite material is green wood

After graduating from the Fine Arts Academy in Florence, Giorgio Romani devoted himself to wood. Beginning with wood sculptures, in 2005 he became a self-taught woodturner, at first just out of curiosity, then as a life choice. While training, he worked as an apprentice carpenter and cabinet maker, then as a carver. “Every material has its potential, it’s up to everyone to set it free," he says. After ten years making basic products for shops, Giorgio now creates contemporary design objects, such as bowls, vessels, hollow forms, unique furniture pieces and sculptures. In 2020, during the pandemic, he moved back to Abruzzo, his beloved region, to focus on his essential need for wilderness.
