“In Giovanardi I was struck by the variety of the working techniques and the great attention to details and to the product quality; likewise, I was surprised by the constant research for innovation and the capability of finding creative solutions. It’s a polymorphous entity that seems able to perfectly adapt itself to the different expressive needs of an artist.”
