Francesca Cosmi and Walter Fantino



Funny enough, our adventure in the and sculptures world started just from being parents::

..... let our children have fun and dream .....

So one day, while we were building planes, cars sand castles someone stopped by to congratulate and suggested that we have a look at the large sand sculptures events held in Italy in Cervia and Jesolo.

This is how we participated in the 1st Trophy"Città di Cervia" winning the 1st prize in 2001and meeting many Italian sculptors, among which Leonardo Ugolini and Carlo Capelli.

The following year we were selected to compete in the "World master" in Cervia..

In 2003 we were invited to "World master" in Cervia, where we got the 4th place after great artists like Vladimir Kuraiev and Sandy Feet.

In 2010 we participated in the "30th U.S. Open Sandcastle Competition", Imperial Beach (CA), USA, prizes: First place Master B

From there on it has been a stream of sand castles and sculptures and we competed in the most important events like "U.S. Open Sandcastle Competitons" San Diego (California), "Sandsation" Berlin (Germany), "Harrisand" Harrison Hot Springs (Canada), but also in Italy at"World Master" in Cervia, in Grado, in Marina Romea, in Merano, in Rimini, in San Benedetto del Tronto, in Scicli, in Tricesimo and in Udine.
