Progetto - Studio Aphorisma

Our Project
Studio Aphorisma’s atelier is located on a hill where Chianti wine is made, in a former farm holding nestled among vineyards, cypresses, olive trees and centuries old oak trees, near Cassia, an ancient road that connects Florence to Siena.

The atelier
Our atelier represents a reference and cultural exchange point for people boasting different experiences in the European textile and art sectors.
During certain periods throughout the year, it turns into an open lab where courses are offered that focus on teaching weaving techniques and art subjects.









The goal of this activity consists in creating a communication platform so that the participants in our courses can reciprocally exchange information, practical experiences and ideas, with the aim to integrate artistic-craftsmanlike knowledge with today's know-how, tools, techniques and technologies.

About us
Studio Aphorisma, directed by artist Nicola Sansò and textile designer Anna Silberschmidt, is a studio that focuses on research, design and professional consulting mainly with regards to topics concerning fabric design activities and modern artistic creations.
Studio Aphorisma, thanks to the combination of technical know-how with artistic and creative experience, is able to turn any idea into a tangible creation.
