5 things I have learned from Ciro

1. See beauty in everything, even in the ugliest things.
  • Spending time with Ciro has always amazed me, he turns trash to treasure. He has this Midas Touch that turns old to gold.  Every now and then we go to heaps of refuse that have thousands of things in them. Ciro chooses things that can be transformed into something new. Recycling and Reusing things has always been his forte. It is amazing how his eyes have been accustomed to seeing beauty - it's a good thing to remember because we often focus on the bruto (ugly) parts of life. 
  • Oftentimes, we also visit the nearby Arno river to scour for drift wood. These (sometimes) rotting logs, branches, and twigs still are useful for Ciro. By some sort of magic and technical expertise, Ciro brings these dead pieces of wood to life! (I was telling him that he might be the real Dr. Frankenstein, and he rolls his eyes!) He would cut these wood appropriately, then we will clean them, then he will put terra (clay) and form houses, bridges, towers, etc. on top of them. The outcome is always fantastic!

Insider's preview of La Bottega Di Ciro

Buon Giorno!

Today let me guide you to a mini-tour about the life inside the bottega (shop) of Ciro.

This place is really interesting because it houses a lot of Ciro's artworks and it is where his creative spirit pushes the imagination to the limit.

Ciro has perfected his craft through this small little house and people from all over the world, flock to the La Bottega di Ciro (The shop of Ciro) with eyes of wonder and curiosity.

The first day I arrived here, my head was turning 360 degrees, it was a visual feast. True enough,  I discover a new thing every single day that I stay here. Ciro has approximately created 16,000 unique artworks, up to date.

How did he do that? 
It makes me wonder as well, and I think that would be a good topic to write about in the blog posts that will follow.

So welcome, let's get inside the La Bottega Di Ciro!

Konnichiwa! Ciro's Travel to Tokyo, Japan


Back in 2013, Ciro went to Kyoto, Japan along with some friends to hold an exhibit about a fusion of western and oriental-inspired artworks. It was a 12-day visit that made a lasting impression for both Ciro and the guests.
His trip to the land of the rising sun was memorable. He met new friends and got acquainted with interesting stuff like Ramen, Sushi, Sumo wrestling, Sake, Samurai, Katana, Kanji, etc.

When an Italian-Artist meets the Japanese Culture it results in a magnificent display of art.

The exhibit in Kyoto showcased the curiosity of Ciro on the beauty that Japanese people appreciate. Bringing his artworks to Kyoto, he created a rapport with the Japanese curators and guests, all the more expressing fully, Belleza (beauty) through "Art".
