April 2014 – Part II –

Hi there, I’m here again. In front of my Pc, in Grottaglie, planning and dreaming, sharing my desk with allergies and dust. Last week I spent a couple of days in Bologna with two great local artists Paolo and MariaRosaria. We are in contact with a gallery in San Lazzaro, so we planned to go there for the weekend to check the situation and support Mariarosaria with her solo show. I have to be honest, it was an amazing experience. We had a studio, a hug house and mountains to enjoy opening the windows. We had bad food, pencils and time, so we spent hours drawing casually and having fun. We shared piece of papers, chatting about life and drinking bad wine in a mountain where internet doesn’t work. My soul was completed disconnected.

On Monday after a night without sleep in a bus I arrived in Grottaglie where I had a couple of good news.
– Pugliacalling wrote a small review about my studio on their blog. They celebrate me like a man with an hot heart. I don’t  know how it sounds in English, maybe like an indian nickname, but in italian cuore caldo is really sweet. Click here.
– I received a catalogue about the experience that i did last year in Neumunster. I was selected for the ceramic artist in residence  with 9 ten super great artists. Click here for more info. Above you can see a picture of one of the pages.


Now I have to go. I have to finish a lot of works, go to Taranto, pack stuff, ship works, and most of all, stay with my sister. She is going to married soon. Wish you the best, hug little sister.
See you soon….

April 2014 – Part I –

As I wrote in the last post I’m doing my best to update the blog regularly.
In the last weeks a lot of things happened I did a presentation, I went to Rome, I did an illustration for a book, ecc. ecc.
– The 28th of March there was the presentation of the works that I realized in collaboration with the guys of the Fa.dia, a center for people with different disabilities. We did an installation on the street, while other their pieces plus photos by Dario Miale where showed at the “Galleria Vincenza“. Here you can see some pictures taken by Dario.
I know that people is strange and that idiots were going to destroy the piece. It happened 24 hours later. It made me sad a little bit because the guys from Fa.dia put on it a lot of energies.  Be strong guys, you won anyway.



– Is that enough, by yo la tengo (click here). This is the song of the day.

– The last week I went to Rome to take part at the Artgenial, an event organized by the Elsewhere Factory  and Mercato Monti. I had a to realize some pieces to show how i usually work. It was ok, there was a lot of people walking and buying, but to spent all the day near radical chic is not the best.  Here there are some pictures…. I don’t know the author but thanks anyway.



– A really good friend of mine asked to me to make an illustration for a chapter of a book that will publish soon. This is what I did, I hope that he  enjoyed what I did because I’m not an illustrator, but sometimes it is cool to use a pencil and a rubber. I have to run now. There is somebody that maybe need my support.
Update soon…
