In time for your holiday gift giving, Italian American artist Al Pisano from Piazza Pisano has created several new Italian wall plaques and other Tuscan theme wall décor.
“These new pieces reflect Italians love for the home—and the kitchen!” said Al Pisano. Two of his new pieces use the Fat Chef Décor theme and the pieces capture the personality of everyone’s favorite Italian chef.
A favorite saying of Al Pisano’s is Tutti A Tavola A Mangiare or in English: Everyone to the Table to Eat. Pisano loves to yell that out just about when it’s time to eat dinner. So Pisano made a charming and graceful door topper with that phrase, sculpting all sorts of vegetables and creating an intricate ribboned banner where he carved the words Tutti A Tavola A Mangiare. This wall plaque and door topper would make a very charming accent wall plaque for an Italian or Tuscan theme kitchen.
Nella Mia Casa Nessumo Va Affamato or No One In My House Goes Hungry is another well know Italian phrase that Al Pisano of Piazza Pisano has used to create a plaque to decorate an Italian theme kitchen. It really says what Italian kitchens and families are all about!
Also in the new collection is Ciao Bella. Al Pisano from Piazza Pisano made this Italian plaque to hang at a front door for an inviting Italian greeting. Ciao Bella!! So gracious! So Italian!
Since it is the Christmas season, Pisano created a new Buon Natale plaque to add to Piazza Pisano's Christmas collection of Italian wall plaques. This Buon Natale sign features an intricate poinsettia flower and words Buon Natale, or Merry Christmas.
The Christmas season brings back wonderful memories Pisano has of growing up in the Bronx in a large boisterous Italian family. The artist's mother was one of 12 children and his father had 4 brothers so there were lots and lots of aunts and uncles and cousins around for the holidays.
Pisano reminisced recently about going to his Uncle Louie’s for Christmas Eve and the Feast of Seven Fishes. The uncles kept their bottles of homemade wine next to them on the floor and argued about who had made the best red. Piazza Pisano has a blog of Al Pisano's memories of his Italian Christmas feast at http://blog.piazzapisano.com/
Pisano is continually designing and creating new Italian and Tuscan themed art for Piazza Pisano and for Italian and Tuscan decor in homes and restaurants. Pisano works with knives and chisels to create his dimensional art and then creates rubber molds to cast reproductions. These extremely high quality molds capture every little detail of the artist's carving knives and chisels. Every plaque is then hand painted and stained to a lustrous and durable finish.
