Born in 1930 in the town of Fiume Veneto, Pordenone located in the northeastern region of Italy; he immigrated to Canada in 1954.
Along with his wife Olga, he brought the knowledge and skill to weave cornhusks learnt from their elders. The husks were weaved into a variety of items such as chair seats, purses, sandals and bottle covers.
Arturo has since converted his knowledge and skill into the craft of weaving with thin cable copper wires. He weaves the wire into a variety of shapes and objects using the vibrant colours found on the outside casings. His creations are artistic and functional in purpose.
His handiwork now graces many households both in Canada and abroad.
