Growing up in my job, it was every day more visible I was specialising as prop-maker, creating or finding  objects for the scene. In this page I show some pictures of my experience. I really liked working for kids programs, I had the opportunity to use my immagination making very funny things.


This was a tv show for kids realized with puppets. I was the prop maker and I had to create all the scene's objects using light materials like paper, cardboard and foam rubber.  The objects had to be easily joined to the puppets using some small pins.

Working at the Antoniano Studios for 4 years I built many objects. They were made for many different tv productions for kids, and they were invented by the authors : "La Banda dello Zecchino", "Lo zecchino d'oro" and the  "Festa della mamma". These pictures are just some examples of what I did during those 4 years using different materials as cardboard, plastic, paper, poliurethane, neoprene, foam rubber, fabric and so on. My choice was depending on the kind of object, on its aim and on its lasting on the scene.

Our duty was not just building props, but also to create furniture for different moments of the show. These small plays inside the show were made on the blu screen, so we had to pay more attention in using the right colours and the right proportions to give a good result to the perspective.

The props needed for the Eurovision shows was more serious, and usually it had a specific subject.  At Christmas time usually I had to decorate some Chritmas trees, to make the scene happier.
