About the instructors

Pietro is native to the northwestern Italian city of Turin where his father Gaetano founded and operated "Tipografia Accardi." In 1950s Italy, it was a state of the art printing press. His youth spent in the press lead him to paper marbling, restoration and bookbinding. Pietro moved on from his father’s press to establish "La Legatoria del Sole," an artisanal and production-oriented bookbindery in Turin. It served Turin’s Municipal Archives, public and university libraries. After coming to the U.S. he started teaching at the "San Francisco Center for the Book". Together with his wife Vanessa he has founded Accardi Book Arts: a book arts studio and bindery in Gardnerville to preserve the tradition of hand made books.
