Master kite-maker Arnaldo Mazzetto's pieces have travelled far and wide and graced numerous international festivals.

This month, the Italian's works of art bring him to Singapore. Mr Mazzetto, 61, will showcase his handmade kites in a special exhibition at the annual NTUC Income Kite Festival Singapore 2014 presented by Act 3 International at The Promontory @ Marina Bay this weekend.

Mr Mazzetto, who has been making kites for three decades, will also be conducting workshops on kite-making.

His grandfather taught him how to make a kite in their hometown of Este in northern Italy when he was seven.
