“The legacy of Carlo Zauli is marked by the clay and earth he walked on as a child and later as a footballer and artist. His success will always be linked to Faenza, a city which in the immediate post-war period affirmed its dominant role in the contemporary ceramic scene even though it was still deeply rooted to craftsmanship, traditional techniques and maestros. [...] In front of Zauli’s sculptures we find ourselves suspended in a continuous contamination between color and form, in a game of mutual exaltation. Each curve is accentuated by the changing whiteness of the material and vice versa. The loss of control invoked by the artist envelops us and we are forced to abandon ourselves to the strength of the earth.” - Irene Biolchini
