Alessandro Roma

Biography

Alessandro Roma was born in Milan, in 1977, after a series of work experiences in London, Berlin and Brussels, he now lives in Milan. For several years he has been working with ceramics, creating environments in which his three-dimensional works interact with painting. During 2018, following three artist residencies in as many ceramic cities, he presented his works in Montelupo Fiorentino, Faenza and Albissola Marina. His work has different results in each of the cities where he worked. This aspect is due to the different relationships he established with the people and artisans he met. In fact, interacting with the craftsman during the production phase of the pieces, is an element of fundamental importance for his growth as an artist.
