new city, rebuilt after the earthquake of 1968.This exhibition displayed the work of artists who have chosen ceramics as the sole medium of research and experimentation, though taking different approaches. The introduction of the Japanese technique of raku has opened new horizons to the works of artists like Rossella Capuano and Kicco Carrega. Giovanni Russo, instead, for years has concentrated his attention on the possibility of extending the material, lightly incised with a needle, with coloured beadings, which, placed on the lathe, dilates extending the incisions and stretching the surfaces, creating extremely elegant shapes. Different is the research of Emilio Angelini whose work in terracotta, decorated with thread like forms, nails and bolts looks very much like complex crystallised machinery, fossils of a new era already passed. Ambitious is the research of Giacomo Alessi, who attempts to go back over the stages of the history of art transferring it as images to the surface of numerous plates. The works on show by Mariella La Guidara and Lim have documented the difficult relationship of ceramics between art and design, unique object and series production, while those of Canzoneri, Rosella Leone and Filly Cusenza, the eternal attraction of ceramics and the material on who creates art.
