Carlo Zauli Collection
The collection dedicated to the Faentino sculptor unfolds along an anthological exhibition path, divided into sections that highlight the artist’s inclination for experimentation and a continuous reinterpretation of his own expressive language: from the essentially more ‘ceramist’ Zauli of the early 1950s, with objectual works of archaic and primitivist taste, to his latest sculptural research of the late 1980s.
This path is divided into a series of exhibition rooms and also includes the internal garden, the old workshops which are in their original state and which remain a workplace, and the cellars which are used as warehouses for earthen materials.
In an installation in collaboration with Rolando Giovannini there is also a room dedicated to the industrial design of tiles for La Faenza, of which Zauli was artistic director and designer.
The museum preserves a collection of works created within its workshops, built in recent years through encounters with contemporary artists and the material of the local tradition, ceramics.
Established in 2004 with the donation of Mathieu Mercier, it has been expanding every year with equally prestigious names but also thanks to pieces by young artists, and it is constantly growing, as part of a collection of extremely heterogeneous works, as a testament to the versatility that even a material as traditional as ceramics can acquire upon encountering the contemporary.
Due to limited space, the collection is only partially set up for public display.
The entire collection can be seen on Flickr.
