Bottega della cartapesta

Bottega della cartapesta

Santino Merico has been working in his Lecce workshop since 1982. There he creates sacred figures, performs restoration work and creates various objects. He makes his pieces on a base, a mannequin made of straw and iron, then covers it in papier maché and delicately paints it. Together with the wide range of products already made, the customer can request customized personal models, from small statuettes to furnishing articles. Merico has won a number of awards for his works, which are filled with local tradition and the artistic spirit of this skilful craftsman.
