Cecco Bonanotte: Artist Page

Described as the “Master of Figurative Sculpture” or the “Poet of Form,” Cecco Bonanotte is one of the most prominent sculptors in Italy. His creative works delve deep into the human conscience and are influenced by a sensibility for time and space. Bonanotte says, “At the depth of human mind, there flows deep feelings such as joy, sorrow and love. I want to express the continuity of deep human sentiments through shape.”
