I have visited Cortona for a number of years before I found Ciancarlo’s carvings .Each piece unique and perfect. Exquisitely delicate carved fruit like nothing you have seen before, sculptures, delicate wooden bowls a real find.

Do not miss this small jewel of a shop with a fabulous, conversant craftsman! The workmanship is superb, and you will not regret bringing home a wood carving treasure to remind you of your stay in Cortona.

Giancarlo’s work is exquisite. He is a true artist. Fascinating to hear him explain about the woods and finishes he uses for the various pieces. All of the pieces are unique works of art

Giancarlo is a talented artisan. My children and I stopped in to his shop on the way to a music performance, and the woodwork is breath taking. The shop was full of many items I would love to display at my home, and my children also picked out their favorites. Giancarlo was welcoming and engaging and took time to detail the process by which he works and answer our questions. I have one of his apples on display in my house now, and it brings me right back to Cortona and the creativity we all have within us if we chose to take the time to see it. Thank you, Giancarlo.

Beautiful, unique pieces and a friendly and open hearted talented artist who loves his work. I bought a special piece made of rosewood, a tree which can no longer ne used for commercial purposes. Giancarlo priced it at 10 times his other creations but the beauty was worth it.
Besides a gifted artist, Giancarlo is warm and very easy to talk ti. He knows his art and as an eloquent artist, can and will sell to you what you most desire.

Giancarlo Rossi is an exceptional wood carver. We bought 2 extraordinary pieces from him while we were visiting Cortona, Italy. His talent is unmatched and he learned from his father who learned from his father. Incredible talent in this family. Cortona is a magical town and you must visit his shop while you are there!

Giancarlo has a magical touch with wood. He learned from a master--his father. I have been collecting pieces for 20 years--first from the talented father, Umberto, and now from the talented son, Giancarlo. Every trip to Cortona includes a stop in this tiny, but elegant shop.

We have been coming to Cortona most years for about 20 years and have always been glad we found this shop. That was when Giancarlo was just young child. It is a very talented family and it is always fun to stop in and check up on the family as well as the latest works.
