Wood and glass extravaganza, the work of Livio De Marchi

“Once upon a time, in the middle of a wood, there stood a cottage made from books where a joker magician lived who was able to turn everything into wood” from Livio De Marchi


The story of the joker magician:

Setting: Venice and surrounding woods ( especially a wood-made books cottage, shelter of the artist),nowadays

Main Character: Livio De Marchi, sculptor, craftsman, carver, artist, magician

Plot: when an incredibly talented carver has also an incredibly wild imagination , magic things happen. Wooden hanging panties, glass colorful balloons floating by the window,   painter bag and brushes carved with meticulous perfection of details. And a lot more. The work of Livio De Marchi has been shown worldwide and can be found in the artist’s studio in Venice. Just like entering the rabbit hole.
