After living abroad for many years, he returned in Trentino, where he previously resided in different locations of this beautiful province, to later settle in a small and lovely valley of incontaminated beauty, the Valle dei Mòcheni. 

Born in Trento in 1964, he praises a long-time experience as product designer at a multinational corporation. In 2006, due to pure curiosity, he started to realize the first vases of various forms and some small objects. He reinforced his great passion for this art and registered the brand that took his name ruggeropallaoro® . Ruggero create unique objects and small limited and numerated series, using mostly wood, but also metals and stone. Experimentation, innovation, harmony and simplicity are the central themes of his creations. In his works, in addiction to the woodturning, there are techniques of sculpture, texture, and colors. All of that without ignoring a fundamental element,...a continuous dialogue with the nature.
