Panta Rei and Tabula Rasa: two specials by Officine Rossopuro

A face well-known to our community, Filippo Barbacane is the artist, part craftsman and part mechanic, behind the wonderful custom creations of Officine Rossopuro. For our notebooks as The Clan members, he wanted to give us some details and behind-the-scenes info about two of the latest creations born of his inventive talent. They are two models with strikingly different personalities, and when you see them you can’t help but stop and admire!
