Giancarlo Rossi is a master at his art. He was extremely accommodating and explained his process of carving. The family history in this business is rich in detail and depth. I left with one of his beautiful polished green apples. I will treasure this piece.

What a beautiful creations they make from wood. I have never seen such experienced handcraft man and that for over 3 generations... Their work is embarrassed with passion and good vibes. This is one of the highlights of Cortona....

Beautiful handcrafted woodwork! We bought some of the carved olives as gifts for people back home. Very special pieces, indeed.
