Wooden Marquetry

Wood is one of the most used materials by pre-industrial societies. Among wood-inspired arts, cabinet-making is to be mentioned with its marquetry techniques. In Italy, Rolo-based shops have given an important drive to the creation of wooden artefacts with refined decorations in the past three centuries.
