“Chicken Man” Furniture in Rossano, ItalyPosted: 08/17/2011
If you take the Benvenuti Class through ACS, you will most definitely meet the Chicken Man.
Who is this Chicken Man? Why do we want to visit him?
The chicken man is a furniture maker. He owns a shop in Rossano that makes some of the most amazing furniture. You can walk through his warehouse and pick out a piece to buy. If you want something handmade, he can do that.
Purchase unfinished pieces and have them finished to your liking. Everything is high quality and beautiful. Definitely worth the drive!
Chicken Man’s real name is Eredi Bizzotto Silvano and he has a website, if you’d like to visit.
Why is he called the Chicken Man?
We asked him this during our Benvenuti visit. The story was not as exciting as I’d hoped. During the early years of his business, his yard was full of chickens. They roamed freely, so someone came up with the nickname Chicken Man and it stuck. It has nothing to do with his business, but it is pretty catchy and hard to forget.
Here are some of the amazing pieces he made!
An unfinished bar.
It is pretty obvious in the pictures that there are so many pieces of furniture to see. Plan on spending a good deal of time when visiting this place!
