The ancient cloister of Santa Margherita, whose origins go up to the 6th century A.C., had to pass trhough lots of troubles during the centuries since the time of its foundation, by the Saints Liberata and Faustina. The only witness of its troubled history is now the studio of Agnes, designer of Ceramic Subjects. Originally it was a part of the capitular room of the monastery, but during the time it host many different activities, a faded sign is still visible above the entrance. Despite the time and the centuries has transformed the cloister, this stylistic stratification and this wealth of history they are, for Agnes, a source of constant inspiration. Wandering around in her studio makes you realize the power of her works. Agnes picks up woods, stones or old irons, real gifts of the nature or old forgotten treasures, she is inspired by them, from there she start the work on her creations. Give new life to things that are damaged or in disuse, things that have lost their original purpose. This is what Agnes does with her works, in this fascinating forgotten place that she has chosen for her challenge.
