His work becomes even more impressive when you realise Piccoli, now in his 70's, contracted polio when he was just eight. This has lead to him being in a wheelchair, and despite this, he still creates these amazing sculptures. His large workshop is equipped with a cross-over gantry crane and several block and tackles that allow him to work at chair level, yet in three dimensions.
