StatementMarchetti describes himself as a combination of goldsmith, sculptor, technical processes developerand teacher. He has revisited a number of themes over the course of his career, like the mosaics, or pieces created through chemical corrosion, obtaining a golden skeleton of a piece originally made by silver and gold – As with photography you cannot see the result until the end… I had to work like a blind sculptor – or again, he worked on floating structures, frozen in a limited space, or on plastic gold – it is neither gold nor plastic, but it is, well... both of them – . Right now he is researching the possibilities of drawing on silver with palladium.
