Bruno is the creator of an entirely hand-built amusement park in the middle of the forest in Montello, Italy. He got the idea for magical park while working at his family-owned restaurant, Ai Pioppi. He had afternoons off and wanted to start a project in his spare time. At first Bruno thought maybe he could start a tavern or an inn, but then this unusual idea came to him. He found a plot of land and thought maybe he'd start building a swingset for kids to play on. That idea soon turned into much more than just swings.

Bruno's handmade amusement park now has slides, seesaws, gyroscopes, zip lines, and even roller coasters, and attracts hundreds of people a day. He says he gets his inspiration from nature, like the way a leaf moves in the wind. He's never studied physics or engineering but he has real world experience which has taught him a lot about how things work. Building these big toys for kids to play on has become a sort of game for him. Just like children have fun playing at his amusement park, Bruno has fun building it.
No matter if it's a big project or a small one, Bruno gets an immense amount of satisfaction from building these toys because it's something he creates with his own mind and with his own two hands. He's spent the last 40 years doing it and there's no sign of him slowing down anytime soon.
