About us

Marco Chiodelli Bussandri - Founder & President

I’m co-founder and President of Chiodelli Arte and, for more than 6 years, I’ve worked closely with my uncle, the commendatore Oscar Bussandri. Oscar founded his company at the beginning of the last century, in Venice and specialised in woodworking and high-end furniture manufacturing.

For over 70 years, he was involved in the creation of the most luxurious and exclusive interiors in iconic buildings and residences all over the world serving American Presidents, Royal Families and Emirs. During his long life, he continuously contributed to the succeeding of the Italian elegance in the interiors and the importance of craftmanship. As his nephew, I grew up in this environment where I was taught every secret on how to create bespoke luxury interiors. I started by working alongside architects and designers in the technical drawings departments to understand the single starting point of every project: to visualise the design and measuring.

I learnt how different woods, marbles, iron wrought and fabrics, respond differently to certain manufacturing processes and uses and I developed a taste for high-end furniture, classical arts and luxurious interiors. Sadly, Oscar passed away in 2012 at the age of 90 but I'm incredibly proud of being the descendant of such a rich cultural heritage. By the time I was 26, I was ready to establish my own brand and Chiodelli Arte was born in 2015. My company mission is still the same: To enhance classical Venetian craftmanship and provide the best service in manufacturing the most elegant and luxurious interiors in the world.


Diego Chiodelli Bussandri - Founder & CEO

I founded Chiodelli Arte in 2015 to relaunch in a modern approach a more than centenary family tradition in the Venetian art furniture making. My varied experiences in multinational contexts have helped me to grow Chiodelli Arte as a solid, credible and well capitalized company, while satisfying my own mission and desire to enhance the cultural and artistic roots of my family.

An important milestone was the identification and launch of the new production site in Fonte, Treviso district, and the co-ordination for an ecological transition that allowed the company to achieve energy self-sufficiency. Another exciting and strategic step was the creation of a network of companies called ITALIAN INTERIORS GROUPS which strengthened the diversification of skills of CHIODELLI ARTE into new markets, with the offer of a high-end range with ‘Made in Italy’ as a fundamental signature.
