AGE-OLD TRADITIONS .

ANTICO Laboratorio Marmi Artistici VENEZIA

An art shop. Centuries of passion, refined abilities and constant diligence and dedication. Ancient techniques of workmanship, secrets jealously kept and handed down from the fathers of the fathers. A laboratory founded by Prof. Romeo Dall'Era and then amplified by his son Bruno. It was 1896.

REPEATED EMOTIONS.

ANTICO Laboratorio Marmi Artistici VENEZIA

Fascinated, enraptured by beauty. At only twelve years old, Giancarlo Comelato felt like this. He was making his first steps in life and he had already entered into the world of art, having the fortune and the honour to be a shop-boy in the most prestigious shop in Venice. It was 1956. A passion which he still has, after more than half a century of continuous and inspired activity. Today Alberto and Giovanni are following the old know-how, keeping alight the sacred flame of an Art which is recognized all over the world and which acquires prestige and value as the years go by. Two artists profoundly respectful of the ancient techniques of sculpturing, gifted with a natural talent worthy descendent of the Founders of the Workshop.

UNIQUE PIECES, ACCORDING TO DESIGN.

ANTICO Laboratorio Marmi Artistici VENEZIA

At the Workshop Dall'Era you will find the typical capacity of old-time art shops to transform your requirements into splendid works of art. From dialogues with Alberto and Giovanni all the particulars of the piece you wish to have created will emerge. Colours, forms, materials, but most of all‌the emotions you wish to be transmitted by the work. An outline will emerge, shared with you and then time and inspired workmanship will do the rest. You will receive a unique and unrepeatable piece, which will distinguish the places of your living. Which will speak of you and of your sensibility. Of your choices.
