A Milanese Napolitaine, one, for table five ! Yelled the waiter in the direction of the kitchen where the famous chef, Rodolfo Monti, was tasting his world famous recipe known as Spaghetti Putanesca with stinging nettle sauce. Mmmh questo é eccellente, straordinario, splendido, incomparabile ! The chef exclaimed in ecstasy as a long strand of spaghetti al dente disappeared noisily, swallowed up in his mouth. Two lasagnas à la bolognaise, two, for the seven! Shouted again the head waiter with a new order. Wait un po, I’m not una machina! Steamed the maestro while he tasted his sixth spaghetti dripping with sauce. Humm, it’s incommensurabile, exquisite, exceptional, favolosi ! The chef couldn’t stop from repeating himself with his mouth full, while dunking a hunk of bread in the sublime sauce and wiping his mustache with his sleeve.

During his studies, artist Guillermo Forchino discovered and mastered classic techniques and materials. He began creating figures made from wrapped bands of cloth where the visible parts(hands and head) were made from wax and papier mache colored with natural pigments. He subsequently chose poly resins to create figures that resemble the world of comic strip and cartoon characters. They are handled with finesse and given a soul and a story. Every single item is wrapped in the unique Forchino Newspaper with a special label attached, individually numbered and identified by a stamp on the bottom of each piece. A unique and numbered certificate of authenticity completes each package. When a suitable quantity of each item has been produced and sold, the item is retired to help keep its worth.
