Who does it?
Carpenter and more
Born in the province of Venice, he approached the world of carpentry as a child, following in his uncles' footsteps.
Ivan is a carpenter full of surprises; as well as working with wood in Arte Veneziana, he is a passionate ski mountaineer, mountain biker and excels at climbing, an activity he loves so much that he teaches it.
Theory and practice
The soul of wood
It is not only manual skills that are needed for Ivan's job, a general knowledge of technology and numbers for using special industrial tools.
The part of preparing the wood and carving, however, is done completely by hand because each type of wood has its own 'soul' that needs to be respected.
Arte Veneziana is always up-to-date on raw materials: glass and wood.
The difficulty is in managing the materials, trying to learn as many characteristics as possible to create a product that is in line with the times.
Collaboration between carpenters is also very important to optimise time and complete the work in order to facilitate, later, the other..
