Energitismo Insight

The places where we are brought up and the air we breathe as a family contribute to forming of the person, so says Giuseppe Lorenzi. The ambiance of Bergamo, bursting with beauty but also being one of the most important Italian industrial centers, combined with his family origins of small business owners, have influenced his art. His love for the clay came immediately and his greatest pleasure is the continuous experimentation with new chromatic and structural solutions for everyday objects. This gives rise to collaborations with firms producing furniture handles and doors, and international companies in the heaters to establish a confidential rapport between art and consumer. With his work, the art comes daily. But Giuseppe is not just a ceramist. In his artistic activity he has created installations that combine metal with clay and integrating them with a pinch of "irony". It is the case of one installation in the open air, like beautiful opera "If you were born without wings don’t do anything to prevent them from growing," where dozens of small ceramic bird stream out lightly from the curved back of a metal man. l Or as in the installation "Pumpkin", in which a large ceramic seed dangles in the heart of an iron carriage whose coachman, leaves the reins and indulges in a self embrace. This is a metaphor for the recognition and appreciation of the "Self"!

GIUSEPPE LORENZI

Giuseppe is attracted to clay through an ancestral relationship: "Clay has accompanied man throughout his evolution, it is anthropologically within us." So we continue to use this material to make everyday objects but with a new and different emotional impact, collaborating with industry.

His "experimental ceramics" and the very meaning of "Raku", lead him to share and organize overnight convivial baking of his works, facing the sea or in the countryside, enjoying every time the magic of the elements earth, fire, air, water and the surprise of unexpected results.

LUCIANA PEREGO

Luciana has worked with Giuseppe for over 10 years, first as his attendant descriptive author and now as a joint creator. Together they created the Atelier Lorenzi.

She deals with the implementation of the works giving them a new depth with her descriptions. The visual and tactile experience accompanied by Luciana’s tales transform objects into "messages". Her creative life has involved creation of what she terms "empty containers", a collection of raku ceramic vases.

Bergamo is an ancient city that suffered a compulsory reconstruction after a visit by Attila in the 5th century. The walled upper-city dates from the middle ages and houses a famous church, Santa Maria Maggiore known for its acoustics and musical tradition. Though Bergamo is birthplace of only one great opera composer: Donizetti.

It fell under the control of Venice for several centuries before Napoleon. After a relatively peaceful second world war, Bergamo became one of the major industrial centres of miraculous Italian industrial revolution. Curiously, Bergamo hosts three international consulates, Switzerland (banking?), Malawi and Bolivia. It is known throughout Europe for its airport, one of the Ryanair hubs, that is now the fourth largest airport in Italy, and growing.
