Wooden door in Avellino chestnut. The piece is characterised by a notably linear external framework, the lintel features a decorative element (Greek style), created by combining different woods (using an inlay technique) which work together to create a lively decorative effect. The central part includes two door knockers and is characterised by the intertwining of architectural elements in a tasteful tribute to the Italian renaissance tradition which features grotesque components, capitals and plant motifs, skilfully combined by the artist.
