Story

The meticulously finished creations of Bottega Ghianda are the result of a proud heritage of cabinetmaking, or ebanisteria. Irreplaceable skills have been handed down from master to apprentice for many generations. Romeo Sozzi, a passionate cabinetmaker and designer, bought the workshop from Pierluigi Ghianda shortly before he passed away. By taking it over in 2015 without any gap in the workshop’s production, Romeo Sozzi was able to ensure the continuity of this knowledge by continuing to work with the master artisans trained by Pierluigi Ghianda himself. The workshop’s proud heritage of technical knowledge and design has been complemented in its contemporary approach by its new artistic director, Michele De Lucchi.
