Works by Marco Ferri

"I was born in Tarquinia on January 14, 1968. For as long as I can remember I can be seen with colored pencils or whatever concocting. When I was about 10 years old I found myself attending a workshop called Etruscoludens where Roberto Sebastian Matta used to come and experiment with everything, mostly ceramics, and there I discovered a world and fell in love! You know, however, that as a kid you fall in love with everything, and after three years I started the hard job of a boy and completely changed my life, "learn a trade, it will do you good!" my father! And so I did, I learned many trades, which I am not here to tell, in fact it is useless for me to write about my life.

Today I find myself re-doing the same things I did as a child, and it is incredible for me to think that a part of my world has gone into private and public collections and even of some importance, such as the Bank of Italy, the Bologna Fair, collectors, critics and people who esteem my work and I am proud of that!"
