About

"The Forge: a holy place where metals are transmuted, a magic cave where fire bolsters the desire to catch
the uncatchable... where man, like a Demiurge, abstracts from this primal and incandescent metal.
In this mysterious transformation of solid metal to magma and to its solid phase again, lies the infinite
poesy of a timeless, ancient language, lasting forever... and from there the hidden force of physical matter
with its intrinsic rules, and the vital ardour of silent knowledge stem". A.R.

Alessandro Rametta was born in 1974 in Milan, the town where he lives and works. An autodidact sculptor, he was a student in Philosophy at the University of Perugia and in 1997 he founded La Fucina di Efesto, a workshop devoted to research on the border of art, design and architecture. His work grows up in close contact with the working of metals, of which he explores the many expressive possibilities to such a point as to make him discover a personal technique of his own, full of new insights. He practices several techniques, from feverish to goldsmith’s art, constantly altering and renewing them thus creating and pioneering serendipitous courses. This approach results in a sculpture fraught with ancient enigmas, springing from an intimate bond with nature and an attentive reading of alchemic imagination, mythology and traditional symbology, where any alteration he makes to the matter always coincides with an emotional metamorphosis.
