I am a Inlaid Wood artist for generations. My father passed down this passion for wood, taking me from an early age in his workshop. I attended various international courses in wood technology and thanks to my passion I managed to reconcile theory and practice. I would like to pass on this knowledge to my guests in order to appreciate my art.

Nice experience, nicetosee the craftsmenship. I've visited the inlaid museum afterwards and that was a good extra to see all the tems in which the inlays were placed and all the different sorts of materials. Even ivory, copper were used.

Great to better understand how inlaid wood is done. Very nice touch to have samples made so my family could actually try their hand at doing an inlay. Impressive.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience. Umberto and his family were very welcoming and amazing at their craft. Their work is absolutely beautiful and it was incredible to see every step that goes into each piece that you would not think about without getting this experience. It was very fun assembling the coaster and was a little sample of how much detail is put into the work that they do.

Amazing experience. Umberto was looking out for us - not sure we would have found the workshop very easily otherwise! It was fascinating to see and hear about this wonderful craft, and to try it out for ourselves.

This was a wonderful insight to wood inlay. It gave us a deep appreciation for the skill and craftsmanship involved. It was just the right length, and we got to attempt a small piece ourselves. Umberto is knowledgeable and very accommodating, he even helped us find parking near the workshop. It was also fun to see pieces from the shop in stores when we were shopping in Sorrento.
