Antonella Rubertone

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
Born in Potenza, after training at prestigious ceramic art schools in Faenza and Deruta, she opened her own laboratory in the Lucania region, where she lives and works. In 2009 she attended a set design course at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, where her artistic research gained momentum. Throughout the years she has experimented different media, spanning painting, sculpture, ceramic art, and jewellery. Standing out for her originality, Antonella Rubertone has exhibited her ceramics around Italy and made works on commission, some of which are in renowned private collections.
In 2016 she was awarded the first prize at the Premio Capitolium, an International contemporary art contest held at the Galleria Agostiniana in the Sale del Bramante, Rome.
Building on her experience in ceramic art and jewellery, in collaboration with the sculptor Antonio Saluzzi for lost-wax casting, she realised the Ankita tiara to be shown at the XIth Florence Biennale and worn by Nadia Kibout while performing live in the role of Makeda, Queen of Sheba, which the actress interprets in Aniello Ertico’s video Scirocco alla Controra.

is not merely a place: it is an avant-garde idea generated and nourished in an Italian province, quite far from huge capitals.
