TATTISTAMPA will be Part of the 2023 Hand-Made Printing Day

TATTISTAMPA, the print shop installed by Wolfgang Scheibe in Tatti, Southern Tuscany, in 2007, will be part also this year of the Hand-Made Printing Day.
This event was launched in 2018, when UNESCO in Germany recorded this discipline in the list of intangible cultural heritage.

The celebration is followed mostly in German-speaking countries, but it is not forbidden to participated from other countries. So Wolfgang has considered wearing the hat of “honorary consul” for the Day in Southern Tuscany. You may also check the page to see a map of the various locations participating in Europe.

The appointment in the Metalliferous hills is set for Sunday, March 19, from 2PM at the Zucchini farm. This is 1.5 km outside of Tatti, on the road going from the village to Roccatederighi.

Here you may see from a closer distance how the Ape car prints are born, as well as T-shirts and other works, all rigorously created with characters in wood or iron, and graphic insets engraved by hand.

The visit to the workshop is free, but given the limited space available you should please reserve via e-mail at or via whatsapp on +393394465812.

One year in pictures with the Jug Band Colline Metallifere

This is a photo summary of some of the “concerpts” that we did with the Jug Band Colline Metallifere between October 2021 and October 2022. We started with the mini-tour in the Metalliferous Hills with Klaus der Geiger…then Milano, Mezzolombardo (Trento), Groningen (The Netherlands), Cassine (Piedmont), Florence, and various other Tuscan localities, with over 20 events and many more things happening in the background. If you are curious, you can check it all on this blog. For more information and booking: o whatsapp 3317539228.

The photos are an excerpt from around 6500 shots taken by Jack O’Malley in this period, so you don’t see him often. Soundtrack: part of the “Tatti Twist” performed at Pineta Beach in Marina di Grosseto, July 10, 2022.
