Terracolta – The Role of Rome and Lazio in the History of Italian Pottery

Jan. 25 – Feb. 15, 2010
Rome – Italy

A book and an exhibition will celebrate the art pottery made in Rome and Lazio.

The exhibition focuses on modern art and features 59 works, made by 14 eminent Italian ceramic artists. Emilio Greco (1913-1995) and Umberto Mastroianni (1910-1988) open the historical itinerary, followed by Giacomo Alessi from Caltagirone in Sicily, Cinzia Catena, Nino Caruso, Tommaso Cascella, Elettra Cipriani from Florence, Franco Ciuti, Marco Ferri, Antonio Gabriele, Antonio Grieco, Nedda Guidi from Gubbio, Riccardo Monachesi, Speranza Neri.

The book “Terracolta – La ceramica Romana e Laziale” curated by Norberto G. Kuri is a survey on the work of artists, who chose to work in Rome or in the surrounding areas, through the ages, from antiquity to recent years. A large section offers a profound insight on the 20th century, highlighting the outstanding ceramic works from the Liberty and Art-Déco time – if you are in Rome, do visit the House of the Owls in Villa Torlonia – and the magic of the Sixties and the Seventies.
