Art-i-Fizio is the great adventure of Fabrizio Salerno , who name and nickname was always “ Fizio “. So “Art-i-Fizio” contains the name of its designer and literally means “the art of Fizio” in Sicilian dialect .
Fabrizio born in the city of the great Archimedes , Syracuse. Archimedes is the hero of Fabrizio. The passion for mechanics and innovation has led this original craftsman to study “Car Design” at the European Institute of Design where, among other things, he designed the “H.A.L.O. Hybrid Advance Line Over”, a futuristic car.
Once he finished the studies Fabrizio reconverted the knowledge acquired in the IED to applying it to his passion for the artistic metals working. Art-i-Fizio born from this particular combination of design, passion and more.
Fabrizio call himself “ materic poet ” because the accessories he creates are unique objects born from a dream, an illusion that is realized in the reality of shapes. They overcome the pure aesthetics of the object because through movement they are searching for something deeper. An alchemy between matter in transformation and wonder. Every piece created by Fabrizio is not what seems in appearance, but hides much more and challenges you to unveil its arcane secrets.
What Fabrizio realizes are multifunction fashion accessories, “walking sculptures”, objects with a functional and aesthetically pleasing design, etc … This master of metal is able to transform into something unexpected everyday things like: lighters, key rings and so on. Often the raw materials are recycled from scraps that have taken unusual geometric shapes; objects classified as “unusable” in the minds of most of the people who see them, but for Fabrizio represent a challenge to transform them into something original, to give them new life and function.
The pieces created by the “materic poet” are mainly in silver, copper, brass and nickel; you can find some examples below and a more complete list on our store.
