Beautiful work
Aug 2019 • Couples
We walked past this little shop and had a quick look in the window at the beautiful pieces and could hear lots of work going on somewhere and then suddenly a young man opened the door and beckoned us in. He was Giancarlo and proceeded to tell us the entire history of the shop, of woodwork, of furniture and art. It was fascinating and before we knew it an hour had gone by! We bought various little pieces the like I have never seen before and the quality is outstanding. Well worth a visit even just to chat and find out the history of woodwork in the area! But you’ll definitely walk away with something amazing!!

Talented young artist!
Sep 2019 • Couples
My wife and I visited his art gallery. He has few displayed pieces. They were all hand made with such precision & care. He makes us feel how proud he is with his father and grandfather. We bought a beautiful carved apple. The entire piece including the stem was carved from one piece of wood. We had a wonderful time talking to the young man. We wish him the best in his career!!

A beautiful shop in Cortona. Breathtaking woodwork, jewellery and artworks
Aug 2019 • Couples
I first visited this shop with my family in 1998 and met Giancarlo's father. My husband and I purchased beautiful woodworked pieces and a wonderful pair of beaten gold earrings for me. We never forgot visiting the shop, and when we were lucky enough to visit Cortona again this year, I wore my earrings back to the shop. The shop is tiny and packed with treasures made by Giancarlo and his family. There is nothing like it anywhere else that I have been. The prices of the unique works on display are reasonable given the amount of work involved. I would highly recommend visiting this shop, and meeting the charming and talented Giancarlo.

Beautiful, clean, stately, and right in the heart of Cortona.
Jul 2019 • Friends
The apartment was fantastic, just perfect for the five of us. Everything was clean and comfortable and so nicely and elegantly appointed. We spent a lot of time in the apartment, lounging, chatting, laughing, and eating . . . and, of course, a lot of time exploring Cortona and the surrounding area. Thak you so much.

An amazing little shop in Cortona
Aug 2018 • Family
My family and I stumbled across this little gem of shop in Cortona one early evening last August, which at the time was closed, but Giancarlo happily halted his evening meal to re-open his shop so that we could view all of the amazing pieces of his artwork on display. We were so impressed by his talents, that we purchased two beautiful apple carvings.

Giancarlo is such an affable gentleman and an amazing salesperson, especially with his witty humour and funny sarcasm, which definitely wasn't lost on my husband and I.

(P.S. Our sincere apologies for the late review Giancarlo, as we know that we promised to post it last August, after our visit - don't worry though, we're due back in Cortona in a few weeks and we'll no doubt pop into the shop and say hello and no doubt purchase some more items).

I was fascinated by this artisan workshop full of atmosphere and wood smells. All unique pieces made with different types of wood explained with great courtesy and sympathy by Giancarlo.

Giancarlo Rossi: Corona's Woodworking Artist
May 2019 • Business
Giancarlo introduced himself to us at the entrance to his historic shop in Cortona while we gazed appreciatively at the stunning examples of fine woodworking in the windows. Proud of his family's heritage and craftsmanship, Giancarlo told us of the history of the shop and how they made the fabulous pieces on display. He was helpful, humorous, and a great representative of his craft. In all, meeting Giancarlo and acquiring a couple of his pieces was the highlight of my time in Cortona.

Amazing work
May 2019 • Solo
I just loved this shop. It was small, rustic and I felt I had walked into the past. The owner (third generation) Rossi, was super helpful and sweet. His work is amazing! Must stop by!
