Do you know the "Chicken Man"?

Some of you may have heard about the "Chicken Man", he makes and restores furniture. And he is very good at it. Why is he called the chicken man? What I heard is that when his Dad owned the business he had chickens that he let roam around the warehouse, so sometimes when you opened a drawer there would be an egg or two in it. (There are no longer chickens roaming).

Basically you walk into this big warehouse and you can look around. A lot of it is unfinished so if you find something you like you can choose your finish. He has a "special room" where you can choose from all kinds of beautiful inlays, including the 173rd crest.
If you are looking for a nice piece of wood furniture or have something that needs restored, he's your man. His website is:
He is open weekdays (regular Italian business hours) and weekends only by appointment.
The address is:
Via Salute, 137
Rossano Veneto 36028

 To make an appointment or for questions call 0424.540061 or email

  1. Definitely know the chicken man and have eaten lunch at his home with his wife a couple times. Ermmano (Sp?) is awesome! My house is full of his work. I miss Italia so much and hope to one day go back. I often wonder how he and his wife and, as far as I know, 2 kids are doing.
