Pia Virgilio

Restoring works of art requires perhaps even more sensitivity, skill and patience than creating them. Pia Virgilio specializes in aesthetic and preservative restoration of terracotta, majolica, porcelain and biscuit objects, stoneware and enameled metal. After having studied at the famous Ballardini Institute of Faenza (a land known for its long-standing pottery-making tradition), Pia began working mostly on Renaissance majolicaware and eighteenth-century chinaware, then extending her field of interest to the restoration of twentieth-century artistic ceramics and working as a consultant for AXA-Art, FAI and the Fausto Melotti Foundation.
