Alessandro Dari Bottega changed my life, It was in September 2012 when I first set my eyes on this magical spot inside Florence’s ancient streets. It was love at first sight, the classical music of Bach, those soulful rings that take you to the old era, where magic did exist. Inside this place, you spot the maestro, sitting on his workbench and sculpting one of his masterpieces from wax. It was right through this moment that I know my life will change.
I went back to Lebanon, presented my resignation at work, I was a TV producer and post production for 12 years and decided to learn wax sculpting. It was a big challenge, I did not know how to draw and I never sculpted before. The maestro believed in my courage and creativity and decided to help me. I used to go to the atelier every day, from 9 am till 5pm then Italian school from 5:30 pm till 7:30 pm and then back home to work on extra basic exercises.I am lebanese and I spoke Arabic, French and English during my stay I used to help the Maestro with welcoming the clients and guests. The school is very professional, you learn a lot. The Meastro is attentive and take care of each student. He appreciate hard working people and creative. I am grateful to this experience, I was lucky to meet such a persona, I still believe and I will always believe that Alessandro Dari is not from this world. He is magic…

Entrare nella bottega del Maestro Alessandro Dari è un esperienza unica. Il corso di Modellazione della Cera scultorea insegna un nuovo modo di concepire la materia. Il corso mi ha insegnato le molteplici possibilità della cera e come ad ogni problema si ponga di fonte ad essa ci sia sempre una soluzione.
Il maestro Dari non dà solo una formazione tecnica e teorica della materia ma lascia che l’allievo trovi in sè la propria soluzione creativa, esplorando l’anima alchemica del oggetto, in modo da permettere una crescita del tutto personale del soggetto nei confronti della materia.
La grande passione del maestro Dari si percepisce in ogni angolo della bottega museo, diventando contagiosa per qualsiasi appassionato di arte e oreficeria. Questo corso non solo ha migliorato le mie nozioni tecniche, ma l’approccio e l’amore nella creazione artistica.
