I met Italian Scupltor Gianpietro Carlesso!

Yes, finally, I got to meet Gianpietro Carlesso and some of his friends including Max, and the guy who is helping Gianpietro promote is eminently promotable work, Carlo.

It was the first time I’d ever met a real life sculptor, but the experience was painless, I’m pleased to report. Gianpietro is a very interesting person, and a thoroughly decent chap to boot.

I chatted with him about his work and how he comes up with his ideas, which was fascinating. He is very well read and absorbs topics as diverse as particle physics, I think it was (the wine got to my head). And he finds energy intriguing, and this is something he attempts to represent in his work.

Gianpietro gave me a whole bundle of past catalogues, from which I noted just how much his work has evolved over time. Suffice it to say that the variety of pieces he produces is extensive. It’s no wonder that he has quite a number of fans. The more I see what he is capable of, the more I like his work.

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

I have to say that I am extremely happy to have met, face to face, the man behind the creativity, I can tell you.

More about the intriguing Mr Carlesso will be coming soon, I assure you. And a major international magazine is about to release an article about the man and his work. I’d love to tell you which publication, but it would not be good natured of me.

Here is an example of his more recent work ‘Struttura‘, click on the image too see a larger version.

Today, and I caught the highlights, Italy’s Prime Minister Berlusconi held a press conference at which he neatly laid the blame for the election mess up on the shoulders of others.
