In 1991 he created the art workshop La Scultura di Andrea Roggi, where he made his sculptures from start to finish and, with the help of his assistants, he manages to create large but finely sized pieces. detailed. Bronze is his chosen material, which he subjects to the lost wax casting process to ultimately transform the clay models into masterpieces. In 2017, fascinated by the imposing quarries that surround the town of Pietrasanta, the artist began to devote himself to the creation of works of art in marble.
