MASSIMO COSENTINO, BORN IN ROME ON MAY 22, 1957, FROM YOUNG HAS EXERCISED HIS CRAFT WORKING IN THE WORKSHOP OF THE FATHER, LUIGI. ALSO HIS MOTHER, MARISA, WORKED AS AN UPHOLSTERY ARTIST. IN 1985 MASSIMO STARTED WORKING FOR HIMSELF AND CONTINUES TO DATE WITH HIS CRAFT UPHOLSTERY WORKSHOP. 
HE HAS DONE WORK FOR HOTELS SUCH AS HOTEL BEVERLY HILLS IN ROME. HE WORKED FOR THE AUSTRIAN EMBASSY IN ROME AND ALSO FOR THE HOLY SEE IN THE VATICAN. HE WORKED ON THE UPHOLSTERY IN THE VILLA OF THE ACTRESS BARBARA DE ROSSI 
HE WORKED IN SWITZERLAND FOR MANY YEARS. ALSO PROVIDED THE UPHOLSTERY FOR THE BANK OF ITALY. HE DID A LOT OF WORK FOR FILM PRODUCTION DESIGN HOUSE TITANUS. 
TODAY BUYING A SOFA OR A CHAIR IS VERY SIMPLE. THERE ARE ALREADY OBJECTS IN INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION WHICH CERTAINLY CANNOT GIVE THE QUALITY OF A CHAIR HANDMADE AND HANDCRAFTED ECOLOGICALLY. WE’RE TALKING ABOUT BANDS OF CLOTH, OF SOFT HANDMADE SPRINGS, HORSEHAIR, SHEEP WOOL AND FINE FABRIC, ALSO HAND NAILED PIPING, AND SO ON. WE COULD SPEND A WHOLE DAY TELLING YOU ABOUT THE ART OF UPHOLSTERY. IN FACT, THERE IS STILL THE STUFFING OF CHAIRS AND ARMCHAIRS, BUT ALSO CURTAINS OF DIFFERENT STYLES AND THE WALL FABRICS, SUPPLANTING WALLS ALREADY COVERED IN WALLPAPER, NOTHING TO COMPARE WITH THE FORMER. THE COSENTINO WORKSHOP WORK IS HANDED DOWN FROM FATHER TO SON AND PROMOTES THE QUALITY OF LIFE. A COMFORTABLE ARMCHAIR IS NOT JUST BEAUTIFUL TO LOOK AT, BUT IT IS THE RESULT OF QUALITY, AD HOC WORK.
