GINO BONATO,GIANNI BUCCO, GIANCARLO CARON, ADRIANO SPIGAROLO
Thanks to Energitismo, in 2014 four friends got together to revive this ceremonial object that was an integral part of the traditions of the ’low’ Veneto. Luigi (Gino) Bonato, a painter and decorator, has participated in exhibitions on Traditional Ceramic Art. Now he is retired but continues to decorate pottery and is leaderof the Buffona team.
Gianni Bucco was born with the happy destiny to work as a painter. Since he was 16 years old he has painted in the Nove tradition always for the same company.
Giancarlo Caron is the intellectual of the group and is vice president of Noveterre di Ceramiche. He started as a decorator and has changed his job several times with different firms to "integrate" the styles and learn new skills. Adriano Spigarolo is the technologist and the one who produces the ceramics of ‘Bossa Buffona’. In 2003, he learned the techniques and is now one of the few holders of the prankster design and production knowhow.
