Edoardo Tresoldi (Milan, 1987) is an Italian set designer, sculptor and artist

Edoardo Tresoldi Art

He is especially known for his meshed metal installations, which take shape as site-specific transparent sculptures that are perfectly integrated in the surroundings. The artist starts with the dynamics of the space, then develops a story or a character and concretizes them through the creation of the sculpture.
