A Humorous Abruzzo Life in Miniature

Making Salsicca

Bravo Bellante’s Dino Di Silvestre for his hand carved and whittled wonderful take on   life in (La Vita Contadina in miniatura), I love the stern ladies, such expression, they’d make someone a great cook cover.

They\’re absolutely superb, I can\’t imagine how long it took him to create them, this is just a fraction it was 3 tables big especially and making them all move too, ie the pasta ladies rolling backwards and forwards etc.
