Article from NEWS:

The 77-year-old sculptor has spent his life creating unique pieces of work using just a hammer, chisel and his favourite types of wood.
The artist, who normally live and work in Venice has fitted out his holiday home in Belluno with the wooden objects he has made.
Hundreds of individually carved books line the shelves, while perfectly chiseled coats can be seen hanging from the wardrobe - seemingly ready to sling over your shoulder.
The house also has a full-sized dining table, complete with wooden cutlery and crockery accompanied by bread that is likely to crack a tooth or two if you tried to eat it.

De Marchi’s works have been showcased in art shows at several major cities including London, Paris, New York, Tokyo, Zurich, Milan and Florence. Several art magazines such as Vogue, Interior Design, Decoration and Madame Figaro have featured his story as well.
Mr De Marchi's pet projects however are wooden cars which he sometimes takes for a spin down the canals of Venice.
his sells include life-size versions of a Jaguar, Volkswagen Beetle a Ferrari F50 and even a Cinderella pumpkin coach.
