Preciso in testa. Ligurian ceramic centers pay homage to Arturo Martini

19/06/2021 - 15/09/2021

The Associazione Ceramisti Albisola remembers the Venetian artist who from the Thirties worked extensively in the Albisole, Celle, Sassello, Vado, Savona, Genoa, Finalborgo. The exhibition takes its title from an expression of Martini Precise in the head, which meant to have clear the project of the work to be carried out. It brings together works by contemporary artists who draw inspiration from Martini's ceramics, endowed with a freshness that is still relevant today. The exhibition, inaugurated in June in Celle Ligure, a center recently included among the 'Città della ceramica' AICC (Italian Association of Ceramic Cities), continues until mid-September at the Trucco Museum in Albisola Superiore, which was the home and workshop of master potter Manlio Trucco. In all likelihood, in autumn, the exhibition will be presented again in various Italian venues, starting with the Bailo Museum in Treviso, Martini's birthplace.
