Born in Udine in 1958, Gianni Rossetti graduated from the University Institute of Architecture in Venice. For two years he collaborated with Promosedia, overseeing the technical side of the International Chair Exhibition. He also helped to organize other exhibitions in both Europe and the United States. In the early 1990s he opened his own design firm and began designing for various furniture companies from the Friuli Venezia Giulia, Veneto and Trentino-Alto Adige regions. Among them is La Cividina, for which he has designed several collections. He currently works in Tricesimo, where he has also expanded into private and public building design.
