Fausto Melotti: La Ceramica / The Ceramic Works
Ilaria Bernardi, Germano Celant
Edizioni Fondazione Ragghianti & Fondazione Fausto Melotti, 2023
With the exhibition Fausto Melotti Ceramics, created in collaboration with the Fausto Melotti Foundation and the MIC – International Museum of Ceramics in Faenza, the Ragghianti Foundation wishes not only to pay homage to an artist who has been able to combine the classical tradition with the European avant-garde, scientific mathematics with the musical one, the poetic-literary and draughtsman, painter and sculptor skills. Fausto Melotti (1901-1986) above all wanted to be remembered for his multiform and innovative ceramic production, identifying the most recurring types and outlining a new mapping of what Germano Celant called the galaxy Melotti.
