In fact his shop is called Pesce Fresco (‘fresh fish’). All his sculptures are made from reclaimed materials, from driftwood, to nuts and bolts, and even abandoned computer mouses which he made into squid!

Stefano was born  in Livorno in 1965 and grew up in the Borgo Cappuccini district. He began drawing when he was a child, and cultivated a love of design and architecture through his studies at the Istituto d’Arte in Pisa.
