Description: Rome: Ugo Bozzi, 2009. 28.cm., pbk., 103pp., 45 color plates. Exhibition held at Galleria Lukacs & Donath, Rome. Texts by Angela Cạla-Perrotti; Andreina d'Agliano; Luca Melegati; Giuliana Santuccio. Author's summary: Biscuit porcelain, the densely textured, sugar white product of first firing, capable of forcefully rendering the plasticity of monumental Greek and Roman sculpture as well as the three-dimensional translation of graceful, gallant and pastoral subjects, derived from prints, in turn inspired by eighteenth century paintings, has always been a source of fascination to me. My long established passion as a collector subsequently focused the desire to study and attempt to classify those objects that with great difficulty I managed to find. The result is this exhibition, which for many years I have greatly desired but postponed for one reason or another. This wait has however provided the opportunity to explore the subject in greater depth, above all thanks to major exhibitions in previous years. Starting from the most recent archaeologically focused research and depending on numerous objects of particular interest, of which a few are unpublished, I have based my selection criteria on quality of execution, concentrating my study on emblematic objects, that as far as possible, guarantee visitors a panoramic overview of Italian production: consequently the Real fabbrica Ferdinandea and the productions of the Volpato firm - giants both in the quantity and quality of their objects - have been given particular relief.
