Cristiano Gatto

Yacht design is at the forefront of what I do but by virtue of my experience as a sculptor I approach each and every project as a sculpture, with the overall design in mind but refining it to the smallest detail”.

The creative heart of a close-knit group of young professionals, Cristiano is also the “front man” of Cristiano Gatto Design Team.

In 1992, after graduating at the School of Fine Arts in Venice, his specialization being Sculpture, Cristiano Gatto started studying the relationship between Industrial Design and Contemporary Art.

In 1993 he joined the famous design studio Nuvolari Lenard where he became Project Manager and head of the interior design department in 1996 and, subsequently, General Manager.

Alongside with his activity as a designer, Cristiano successfully cultivated his passion for sculpture with many of his statues in the finest Carrara marble exhibited in art galleries all over Europe.

By the end of 2001 he felt that the time was ripe to make a further step so he founded his own company, Cristiano Gatto Design based in Preganziol, close by Venice.

From that moment on, Cristiano Gatto made a name for himself and his reputation grew steadily thanks to his great creativity, knowledge, versatility and straightforward attitude.

Everything began during junior high school where the technical drawing course made me discover the orthogonal projections… as I liked them and I realized I was good in technical drawing, an inevitable choice was attending the Istituto Tecnico per Geometri. Studying design – and getting a degree in Design – helped me adding smoothness and refinement to my hand drawing and thinking.

Working shoulder-to-shoulder with Cristiano allowed me to put into practice and further develop skill and ideas that had been growing for years.

Nowadays, inside the team my personal skills, that I nurture with commitment and enthusiasm, are at disposal of the whole squad as main project coordinator.
