The Bottega d’arte Ceramica Gatti: from Futurism to the future

Riccardo Gatti got to know Italian futurists in 1928, only a few months after founding his workshop in Faenza. It was the beginning of an outstanding artistic adventure that continues to this day: Bottega d’arte Ceramica Gatti.

Gatti believed in the same ideals that a decade later would be translated, in the typical style of the movement, into the “Futurist Manifesto of Ceramics and Aeroceramics”, inviting artists to “forget and move past and overturn ideas and techniques of any ceramic secret”.

That was when Gatti became friends and formed crucial relationships with artists such as Gio Ponti and Giacomo Balla. He had the opportunity to make his work known in Italy and all around Europe, by taking part in the most important shows on ceramics.

After Gatti passed away in 1972, his son Davide picked up his legacy and has continued to nurture relationships and partnerships with an incredibly long list of painters and sculptors of international fame.

So the history of Bottega d’arte Ceramica Gatti goes on, moving past Futurism and on to the future
