Of Sicilian origin but venetian adoption, Piero Massaro immediately strucks for his fresh and original creativity, cloaked in delicious details and lacking of abused contamination.

Each of his collections tells us his passion for the craftsmanship, creating and spreading the taste for handmade things, according to the rules of the past.
