Giacomo e Michele

Craftsmen, Carpenters, Artists

Welcome! We are Giacomo and Michele (from now on call us Giakke and Mikke), two brothers in love with antiques.  We are constantly in search for old furniture and utensils in order to restore them and bring them to a new life. The result is always unique and bizarre: the blend of two people’s creativity, grown together and in love with everything special and well made.  We look for details in all things we enjoy: it can either be a bottle of wine or a piece of furniture.
