"Welcome! My name is Emilio Casarotto and I am a Vicentino sculptor, born in Fimon, in the valley of the Mills. Well, I should have become a miller, however, I almost immediately chose ceramic and terracotta art, training initially at the School of Art and Crafts in Vicenza and then at The Milan School of Art..."
"Benvenuti! Mi chiamo Emilio Casarotto e sono uno scultore vicentino nato a Fimon, nella Valle dei Mulini. Insomma dovevo diventare mugnaio, ma quasi subito ho scelto l’arte della ceramica e della terracotta, formandomi prima alla Scuola d’Arti e Mestieri di Vicenza e quindi alla Scuola d’Arte di Milano. Ora vivo a Castegnero, a due passi dalla chiesa. "
This collection by Emilio Casarotto - now very difficult to find - has received international recognition and acclaim for its accuracy and life-like appeal - and brought a smile to many.
These exquisite sculptures are made from pulverised Italian Carrara marble. Each one is signed by the sculptor, Emilio Casarotto.
