Edoardo Tresoldi is a young Italian designer and sculptor based in Rome. He makes near-transparent sculptures by interweaving common industrial wire mesh which are often positioned in public places.

His beautiful sculptures provide an illusion of rigid stability and a ghostly impression of splendour as a consequence of the translucency of the wire mesh.
