Biography

Stefania Pennacchio, artista che da 25 anni con impegno straordinario si dedica alla scultura ceramica, è nata a Varese da genitori calabresi, ha frequentato l’Istituto d’Arte (sezione ceramica) e l’Accademia di Belle Arti (sezione scultura) a Reggio Calabria. Sculture potentemente evocative, con rimandi antichi e contemporanei allo stesso tempo. Brucia nelle vene il sangue calabrese, mescolato dalle influenze della cultura giapponese nella tecnica della cottura della materia, che crea una mescolanza di citazioni e simbolismi senza confini spazio-temporali.
