Energitismo Insight

Giuseppe has created his own private rinascimento of the ceramic heritage of Nove, a heritage that has been threatened and even decimated by low cost copies from overseas.
What strikes the eye when you first enter Giuseppe’s gallery is colour and shapes, some bright with strong contrasts of expressionism, others more subdued impressionist. At about 18 Giuseppe discovered impressionism and expressionism through visits to famousEuropean galleries.
Since returning from his studies, he has blended the demands of the family factory with time to conceive his own creations, and he has become a new source of inspiration for ceramic art in the region. The colours and designs of Gaudi are never far away. The emotions and eye of the artist has driven the hand in its creation of harmony.
Sets of works fill the gallery – expressionist plates, a grotto of underwater scenes, butterflies on the wall, all unique creations of which the ceramic community of Nove is proud.

The Creator

GIUSEPPE FACCHINELLO

Giuseppe Facchinello has had his destiny foretold by being born into a family of potters and painters and being brought up among the clay working and firing equipment in his parents’ factory in Nove.

Despite his attempts to fashion an independent career, he was drawn inextricably to ceramic art through sharing his mother’s painting skills and joy and by living with the demands and workings of the factory. His destiny may now be to become known across the seas as an inspired artist of pottery from a heart of its traditions.

Location

Italy, NoveFIND IT HERE

The town of Nove is near the heart of Grappa country, with Montegrappa crowning the landscape to the north. The name, Nove, comes apparently from the old Italian for ‘new’ deriving from the Latin Novus, not from 'nine' as in modern Italian. The lands where the town is located used to be part of the Brenta river,but as it receded, the soft lands that were exposed were found to be rich in clay. In Nove artisans are re-emerging in pottery and wine as well as jewellery, and their works can be admired in galleries, bars and restaurants around town.
