MARBLING: An Ancient Art for Contemporary Craftspeople

Guest Speaker | Pietro Accardi

... Bio

Pietro Accardi is native to the northwestern Italian city of Turin where his father Gaetano Accardi operated "Tipografia Accardi," In 1950s Italy, it was a state of the art printing press. From a young age, he assisted his father in the bustling press. He later immersed himself in the more ancient traditions of paper marbling, restoration, and bookbinding.

Pietro went on to establish "La Legatoria del Sole," his own bookbindery in Turin for 12 years. He worked for Turin's Municipal Archives, main public library, and University libraries restoring and binding books. He also ran his own paper marbling and decorative box making business within the bindery. In 2006, he met Vanessa, an American exchange student who "imported" him to America. He was well received as an instructor at the San Francisco Center for the Book. He currently resides in Gardnerville, Nevada with his wife and devoted assistant Vanessa and their numerous felines.  Feel free to contact Pietro at
