Romano Ranieri Torgiano 1935 – Deruta 2015
Today, he possesses sixty years of experience, having lived among those great, in humility, with insuperable needs of improvement. They place him among the foremost, in a level worldwide for the knowledge and applications in the most sophisticated techniques of Ceramics.
Romano’s capablities are limitless, in transferring top effects to ceramics with diverse artistical expressions (Sculture-Oil on canvas-Frescoes-Watercolors).
His works are featured all over the world, in prestigious galleries, in churches, on the streets, in the most famous plazas, and in the Museum of Modern Art in Basilea.
We proudly celebrate his fifty-two decorative ceramic panels (150 cm X 100 cm each); created in Chicago– adjacent to the Scalabrignano Institute in North Lake;
which depict the most significant episodes of the New Testament.
Romano has participated in numerous National and International Expositions, acquiring awards and critic triumph, although he prefers not to be exalted.
One of his aspirations is to leave behind tracks of quality of his works, as signs for future generations to remember the past, to inspire those who will go beyond and surpass.
Proudly, he is the artistic director at the Romano Ranieri School of Ceramic Art in Deruta.
Romano Ranieri is one of our most appreciated and loved artists.
His artistic livelihood, has donated fifty years experience, contributing to establishing a secular tradition in ceramics in Deruta. He is positioned in between the masters who give continuity to this school of cultural esthetics and artesian genuineness, whom characterize and distinguish the “Derutese” style.

He has always practiced teaching and transferring his knowledge, without funds, to his pupils– technical familiarizes and the necessary esthetics in producing the most beautiful ceramics with superior characteristics.
