Living a place and transform it in material.

“There are moments in history that seems to convey and take form, putting everything at his natural place”

We will recall the trepidation, the suggestion of the “Studiolo” placement in his natural adobe, now Polo Museale dell’Umbria where we would admire also other masterpieces.

We will taste, at a local restaurant, food of the tradition.

We will realize together, immersing ourselves in the Gubbio Renaissance technique, a wood object with the inserts of a small “tarsia”, as the one that are in the Studiolo del Duca di Montefeltro. At the end the object is going to be yours as a memory to bring back home.
