The Magical Cabin Of Pin Ups and Billiards by Maurizio Marcato

PIN ART - PIN-UP, BEER e BILIARDSby Sad Man’s Tongue, Photos by Maurizio Marcato of

Not far outside Verona, Italy and just a little past San Giovanni Lupatoto there is a magical place. A place where you can play a game of billiards surrounded by beautiful Italian Pin Up Girls in the warmth of a cabin fireplace safe from the cold and snow. During this magical time the spirits of Gil Elvgren and Art Frahm  lurk in the background as our fair pin up girls find themselves in precarious situations.

717561730Accidents, perhaps caused by the spirits, find our lovely ladies with dresses getting snagged and lifting themselves up. Some have their pink panties falling down for no reason, clearly the ghost of Frham is causing this.  Despite these minor distractions those lucky enough to be able to shoot a game or two of billiards continue with their merry game in an Italian Paradise. We are told if you follow the billiard balls left in the snow, by the Pin Up Girl Fairy, it will lead you to this magical place.

In reality, photographer Maurizio Marcato, has created a wonderful photo set paying homage to some of the great Vintage Pin Up Artists. Taking some classic themes from Gil Elvgren and Art Frahm Maurizio has created a magical place in time through his incredible photography.

Be sure to view these photos in their full size because the details are quite wonderful and Maurizio clearly has a passion for the details in taking some old themes into the 21st century. The colors, the backgrounds, the sets, the lighting, and of course the girls all combine to create some magical moments.
