Who we are
Giampiero Romanò, born in 1973, is an art-designer from Milan, Italy.
His background is not made by design school or arts academies, but rather among nails, hammers and paints in his workshop located in the beating heart of Porta Venezia quarter, where he dedicated himself for more than 20 years to the research and the restoration of antiques and design pieces.
Thanks to such experience and extraordinary hand skills, he started a fruitful collaboration with Maurizio Cattelan and Pier Paolo Ferrari’s Toiletpaper Magazine, adding his original and recognizable touch in the display of their famous graphics by producing art pieces exposed in renowned galleries worldwide.
The appreciation shown for such artworks was the sparkle that made his creativity explode, pushing Giampiero to create one-of-a-kind pieces as an outcome of his extraordinary imagination, up to launching his own line of furniture and accessories, which name, Antichità 3000, well represents the concept the artist wants to express.
If creativity is the art of looking at old things with new eyes, Antichità 3000 line perfectly embodies this idea: Giampiero Romanò melt in fact the heritage of antiques and the art of the past with a gaze to the future, to the newness, to the never seen before, in order to upset the common esthetical canons and replace them with something new and original. His irony and visionary, along with technical knowledge of the materials and manufacturing skills of a yesteryear master craftsman, reflect in his artworks, where, among various creations, stand out spectacular one-of-a-kind mirrors.
