He calls himself a »Hyper-textile hand-weaver«. His book »L´Essere e il Tessere« (Being and Weaving) shows, that Ghersi reflects his work also in a philosophical way. For weaving he uses all sorts of materials. Ghersi often involves his audience into his work (e.g. »Global Home« where passers-by have been asked to bring textiles or other things that can be woven into a vast tent-shaped object), and a lot of textile sculptures were made for public spaces.
