Living in harmony with the nature.

But here, I'm still the artist. This is why I'm in the Seychelles, because maybe my work here's not fifinished yet...Antonio Filippin, Italian-born Seychellois, came to Seychelles in 1992. He is an artist and the creator/ owner of The Pirate Cove, in Seychelles.
" Antonio Felicia Filippin: King of the mountain.

From the mountain high peak, to the rocky Island, I live in harmony with nature, future
and past - today, this is my story, my philosophy.

I was born in the mountain of the Dolomites (Italy) in 1941 and at the age of 14 I went to Germany and lived there for 45 years. In 1992, I came to Mahé, to live forever in my fantastic paradise – this was my journey!

In Germany, for 45 years, I had no roots, but I was happy, then I came to the Seychelles, where I'm happy too.

I like it, I have travelled the world, America, Sri Lanka, before I came here – but everything in Seychelles is easier!

A long time ago I married a Seychelloise and then I became free, I came here as a free man; I'm Seychellois too.

All the signs and carvings you see at the airport, inside and out, those were carved by my hands, 27 years ago... then came modern techniques, the Internet...

But here, I'm still the artist. This is why I'm in the Seychelles, because maybe my work here's not finished yet..."
