Italian and English text

In this catalog of previously unpublished works, the ceramist and sculptor Marcello Fantoni (Firenze 1915-2011) has presented 130 works of great value, based on a clear rediscovery of his regional and Tuscan roots. Fantoni, who exhibited in major museums around the world (from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, to the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, to the Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo), returned here to "pay homage to the ancestors", confirming, as the poet and friend Mario Luzi pointed out, his "harmonious and natural evolution from artisan to artist, from a trade (at the highest level) to creative design and inventive execution”.
