My name is Carlo Ferrari and for over 20 years I have been working in restoration of antique furniture.
One day I decided to make my passion the work of my future. A hobby, a passion just like you have.
I started reading, studying, attending courses, visiting museums, and so little at a time I approached this fascinating world. At the same time I used to work at workshops of some restorers and cabinetmakers.
joined the study to practice. Today I can say that I’m a well-considered restorer, I have many private clients, I work for institutions and some antiques dealer.
