Matteo Seguso inherited a love for engraving from his father, Master Bruno Seguso. Starting in the Seguso & Linzi workshop created by his father and Paolo Linzi, he dedicated himself to engraving, then continued to learn from professionals such as his uncle Mario Seguso and friend Vittorio Barbini.
Seguso opened his own studio in 2006, and began working with Lino Tagliapietra shortly thereafter. His engraved work can be found in many private collections around the world.
