Italy is made of art. In the most remote corner of every single city, town or village lives an artist with a story to be told on a thousand canvases and sculptures and to be shown to the world, creations and creatures of curious and talented souls.
Paolo Sandulli has been living for more than twenty years in Praiano, a few minutes away from our hotel where it is located his atelier.
His terracotta works and his sculptures are part of private collections in Italy and abroad, and so are his paintings, which led him to study and work with great teachers in Naples, Rome and Paris.
Meeting him and admiring his work is a unique experience. In this place time often stops, and silence offers inspiration. Sandulli shapes, creates, and transmits emotions through peculiar feminine busts in terracotta, whose heads are ironically decorated by hair made with sea sponges. Every one of these sculptures has its own name, personality and a personal biography created out of an accurate inner search!
Life close to the sea represents an essential element in Sandulli’s work, celebrated and preserved in his memory by sketches, portraits, and sculptures of the old fishermen of the Amalfi Coast, real artists of fishing and free men that had the privilege to work and live close to nature.
We strongly recommend you book a visit to the atelier Paolo Sandulli, you will meet a Master of Art and his philosophy, which will tell you the importance and the value of being available for knowing, feeing, and learning, a precious gift, far removed from material goods and wealth.
You can even buy or to order, if you want, one of its unique and beautiful creations, which have gone around the world.
