Nothing Better Than Eating Your Own Dish In Your Own Dish




Enzo Formisano is the Master of Ceramic who runs Officina Ceramic School.

This is his philosophy:
The project that I'm trying to realize, with the essential help of my partner Chris, is to create not a traditional school but an open studio were everyone can express his own creativity with our technical assistance. 
We like to think that our core business is not pottery but relationship, a cultural melting pot for people from all over the world that you can meet in Florence. 

We take out of the kiln beautifully designed plates and jars and sculptures, but I received my the best ever compliment when an Israeli art teacher told me : "this is not a place for painting, this is a place for healing". 


Marcella Ansaldo is the Chef who runs GiglioCooking.
Her philosophy is: Learn the rules then break them.
Put yourself in what you do: this is the real freedom.
Thus she considers her school “a place of healing”.
Perfect professional match with Enzo.



This is what came out from their meeting and talking:
