The crafts of Arte 7 09/07/2013
My name is Anna Baccari For over forty years I have chosen to be an artist. I started out as a portrait painter, an engraver, turning later to ceramics and sculpture. In our area the floors of the Hospitalia (guest house) of Hadrian’s Villa are very important as are the ceramic floors of the Villa d’Este along with the Zuccari frescoes, which are part of our culture and our artistic heritage. I try to bring these artistic elements into my workshop, creating tables, ceramics, sculpture
