by Benedetto Ferraro

Benedetto Ferraro was born on July 9, 1983 in Maratea (PZ). He attended studies at the State Art Institute of Cetraro (CS), graduating as a Master of Art in 2003, with a specialization in the art of ceramics. Immediately after the studies he had his very first working experience as lecturer in a pottery class for the detainees of the Paola Circondarial Prison.

In 2009 he became the owner of a small laboratory named Terrenotrie, in Tortora Marina (CS) where he experiments, researches and creates. He begins to realize his art towards ceramics, where every new piece is a dowel of his personal journey. Its art takes shape through clay, art that has seen over the years a steady evolutionary growth. The name itself, Terrenotrie (dialectal word for “land of ours”), shows this strong attachment to its land. The roots well anchored in the history of its people will be the inspiration and the beginning of his artistic journey.

At the same time he confronts himself with other young ceramists and industry experts, thanks to the active participation to exhibitions, awards, events, fairs and festivals that have contributed greatly to the practical knowledge of techniques and methods of ancient pottery cooking. He has worked as ceramist for various training courses in various territorial projects for promotion and knowledge.
