In recent weeks I had the pleasure of visiting an exhibition at the medieval Baptistery in Lenno on Lake Como. Piero Marchesini – a distinguished gentleman and artist – exhibited his beautiful art pieces. Marchesini carves wood, carrying out really lovely works. He lives in Lipomo, Como City, and sculpture is his passion. He has already showed his creations around the world raising lot of attention. Marchesini loves to work on subjects recalling mythology, nature, characters from fairy tales and legends and biblical scenes.
He carves wood – walnut, lime, ash, hornbeam, boxwood, maple, olive, cherry-wood and so on – with great mastery and skill and he is able to create works of singular fascination and charm. More than words, count the pictures, just from the exhibition of Lenno. His next show is planned in Menaggio, on Lake Como, from 30 July to 5 August, 2013 at the Art Gallery (Garibaldi square) overlooking the lake. It’s another opportunity to see its stunning creations.
