“I witnessed Ugo move at ease through our factory and among our artists, observing, listening, and comparing technical and colour choices. There is a strong bond linking Rometti with Ugo La Pietra or rather the tangible relationship with living material, the Umbrian clay, which our craftsmen have shaped under the master’s guidance.” Massimo Monini

“I witnessed Ugo move at ease through our factory and among our artists, observing, listening, and comparing technical and colour choices. There is a strong bond linking Rometti with Ugo La Pietra or rather the tangible relationship with living material, the Umbrian clay, which our craftsmen have shaped under the master’s guidance. It is a collaboration nurtured by the artist’s direct interventions in the form of ‘graffiti’ on fresh engobe into taut lines and mysterious symbols. His visionary and somewhat unsettling creativity appropriately takes street language and engages it with a tribal and totemic sacredness, whilst his exuberant fantasy is contained by extreme geometric and chromatic rigour.” Massimo Monini

Silvana Editoriale was founded in 1948 by Amilcare Pizzi, as a way of remembering his daughter Silvana, who died prematurely in 1944. Through his commitment and passion, Pizzi expanded its business by publishing books of enormous value. In the mid-90s, Silvana redefined its publishing strategy, embarking on a path of growth and development on the national and international markets, focused on the fields of art, design, architecture and photography, all of which is documented in the on-site catalogue. Today, Silvana Editoriale publishes more than 400 titles a year in collaboration with Foundations, Research Institutes, Universities and Museums across Europe, the United States and the Middle East.
