Leonardo Parisi’s Artenova is one of six terracotta workshops from Impruneta taking part in the three-day event “Buongiorno Ceramica” held in Impruneta from 29 to 31 May 2015. The event is on its first edition, promoted by the AICC (Italian Association City of Ceramics) and Artex (Centre for Artistic and Traditional Handicrafts of Tuscany) and it involves 37 Italian towns. Impruneta, the heart of Tuscany’s terracotta, will be alive with dance festivals and music, the performances taking place in the oldest terracotta workshops of the town to be still active, like the Artenova workshop in via Europa.
The doors of the workshop in via Europa, will open on the afternoon of Sunday 31st, to share the experience of their craftsmanship with a live demonstration of how a clay sculpture takes shape. It includes an exhibition of photographs, paintings and sculptures, as well as a live demonstration of sculpture with clay. All this will animate the work places where every day the Parisi family (brothers Andrea and Leonardo and father Giuseppe) patiently hand craft their now famous wares. From 5 O’clock onwards at Artenova you will be able to visit an exhibition of photographs by Nicole Guillon, paintings by Lorenzo Vada and sculptures by Francesco Battaglini, Lorenzo Pallante and Giuseppe Procopio, the artists who will also be present in person to execute the live demonstration.
