​EOLO TOMASSONI

​"​THE CRAFT"



...LEARN ART 
​AND PUT IT ASIDE...

​​

 eolo tomassoni restore


THE CRAFT THAT EOLO LEARNED IN THE WORKSHOP FROM HIS FATHER ENNIO IS ABOVE ALL HOW TO DECORATE. BUT NOT JUST THIS, AT THE WORKSHOP THE WORK VARIED FROM DECORATION TO RESTORATION, THEREFORE DIFFERENT CONCEPTS WERE PUT INTO PRACTICE. THE PROCESS OF GILDING, WITH ALL THE STEPS INVOLVED, OR THE POLISHING BY HAND, VENEERING, THE RESTORATION OF OLD OIL PAINTINGS MAGRO AND GRASSO DISTEMPER, WALL DECORATION DISTEMPER, TROMPE L’OEIL, HAND DRAWN ORNAMENTS, MARBLE FAKES, AND MANY OTHER THINGS THAT MADE UP THE TOMASSONI WORKSHOP, A REAL BATTLEFIELD OF THE TRADE AND CRAFT OF A DECORATOR, 
THE BEAUTY OF THIS JOB IS THAT IT WORKS FOR THE QUALITY, SO THERE IS NO CONCEPT OF LOWERING YOUR COSTS FOR A COMPETITIVE PRODUCT, HERE WE ARE IN THE WORLD OF FINE ART, SO WE ARE ALREADY POTENTIALLY AT THE CONCEPT OF AD HOC. TIMES ARE CHANGING OF COURSE, AND EOLO KNOWS THIS, BUT IT DOES NOT CHANGE HIS LOVE FOR HIS PROFESSION AND THEREFORE HIS CONTINUITY AND ALSO OPENNESS TO NEW FORMS OF ART, BUT WITH A SOLID BASE FOUNDED IN TRADITION, AND NOT LIKE IN CERTAIN CASES, FROM THE DESTRUCTION OR IGNORANCE OF ANCIENT TRADITION TO GIVE LIFE TO WORK THAT TAKES AWAY THE INVENTION AND ABILITY TO FEEL LIKE THE PROTAGONISTS OF ARTISAN WORK THAT IS MUCH MORE ARTISTIC. WE WILL SEE SOME EXAMPLES OF WHERE EOLO WORKED AT THE WORKSHOP AND LEARNED HIS CRAFT. THEN WE WILL SEE HOW HE USED THIS ART IN DIFFERENT CONTEXTS, AT TIMES TOTALLY DIFFERENT FROM HIS WORK EXPERIENCE, THIS IS WHY EOLO ENGAGES IN EACH NEW THING WITH AN ATTITUDE OF RESEARCH AND ECLECTICISM. HE BELIEVES THAT MEN LIKE LEONARDO DA VINCI WERE AWARE THAT ART GOES BEYOND PROFESSIONALISM, THEREFORE TO EXPLORE EVERY ASPECT OF DIFFERENT ARTISTIC DISCIPLINES IS FUNDAMENTAL FOR EVERY ARTIST, WHILE MINIMIZING THE ART TRAINING DUE FROM YOUR TEACHER, IT IS CHILDLIKE, AND LEAVES ROOM FOR COMMERCIAL SPECULATION, OF WHICH ULTIMATELY ALL OF US ARE VICTIMS. ART IN REALITY IS NOT REPRESENTED BY THE ARTIST, AS IT STARTED TO TAKE HOLD IN THE EIGHTEENTH CENTURY ROMANTIC PERIOD, WITH THE FIGURE OF THE ARTIST ITSELF PUT ON CENTRE STAGE. ART IS ETERNAL, AND ALL OF US CAN REPRESENT IT OR BE REPRESENTED BY IT, "LONG ART, SHORT LIFE" AFTER ALL.

DECORATION

FAUX MARBLE

NOWADAYS IF YOU WANT CLASSICAL FURNITURE IT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO GET HOLD OF ANTIQUES, BE IT FURNITURE OR OTHER ITEMS, SO REPRODUCTIONS IN CLASSIC STYLE ARE INCLUDED IN MANY LUXURY FURNISHINGS. HERE OF COURSE USING THE TECHNIQUES OF THE PAST AND ALSO THE INTERACTION OF DIFFERENT CRAFT DISCIPLINES. OFTEN TO MAKE A PIECE OF FURNITURE OR A CHAIR DIFFERENT CRAFT STYLES ARE USED TO GET TO THE FINISHED PRODUCT. 
EOLO TOMASSONI MAINLY INTERACTED WITH DIFFERENT ARCHITECTS IN THE PURE WORK OF DECORATION TOGETHER WITH HIS FATHER, ENNIO TOMASSONI. SINCE HIS YOUTH HE HAS WORKED WITH MANY INTERIOR DECORATORS OF GREAT TALENT SUCH AS CARLO RICCI, SANDRO CORVISIERI, CESARE ROVATTI AND OTHERS. FROM THE BEGINNING HE HAS UNDERSTOOD THAT A GOOD DESIGN NEEDS AD HOC PERFORMERS, SO THE END RESULT IS REALLY AD HOC. HERE ARE SOME LONG-STANDING PICTURES SHOWING HIS DECORATION WORK.

THESE WALLS COVERED IN SILK HAVE PILASTERS, AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE PHOTOS IN REALITY THE PILASTERS ARE FAKE, THESE SMOOTH BANDS WERE DECORATED BY EOLO WITH THE FAKE MARBLE TECHNIQUE, THAT GIVES THE EFFECT THAT THEY ARE REAL FLUTED PILASTERS.

THIS DOORWAY WAS DECORATED BY ENNIO TOMASSONI USING FAKE MARBLE TECHNIQUE. THE SYNTHESIS OF THIS ANCIENT TECHNIQUE IS TO CREATE A MARBLE EFFECT, AND NOT TRULY COPY MARBLE. SO ANY KIND OF MARBLE HAS ITS TECHNIQUE AND MANUAL SKILL.

​​FLAT IN CHINA

​THIS DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION WORK OF AN APARTMENT IN CHINA DESERVES ATTENTION. 

​BEING A COUNTRY WHERE ITALIAN CRAFT IS NON-EXISTENT, EOLO TOMASSONI HAD DO A DO MORE THAN JUST FOLLOW-UP ON THE WORKS WITH COMMITMENT, BUT DO THE DECORATION PERSONALLY, SO THAT THE END RESULT WAS ITALIAN STYLE IN SPITE OF THE MATERIALS AND LOCAL LABOUR.

THE FURNISHINGS WERE SO LOVED BY THE CLIENT THAT THEY PUBLISHED THE PHOTOS IN A CURRENT CHINESE MAGAZINE. ​ALSO IN CHINA NOW ITALIAN TASTE IS GROWING IN POPULARITY, AND DESPITE PROBLEMS SUCH AS LACK OF AVAILABILITY OF QUALITY MATERIAL AND SPECIALISED LABOUR, YOU CAN GET A NICE EFFECT TAKING INTO ACCOUNT CHINESE CULTURE WITHOUT COMPROMISING STYLES. THE TARGET OF AD HOC IS TO MAKE FURNITURE 100% MADE IN ITALY, WHICH IS MAYBE A LITTLE CHALLENGING BUT STILL FEASIBLE.
