Giampaolo Bertozzi, born in Borgo Tossignano in 1957, and Stefano Dal Monte Casoni, born in Lugo di Romagna in 1961, met while studying at the Gaetano Ballardini Ceramic Art Institute of Faenza, Italy. In 1980, they founded a ceramics production company called “Bertozzi & Casoni s.n.c.,” thereby inserting themselves into the tradition of workshops. Their work was featured in the Italian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2009 and 2011. Recent museum exhibitions include a survey at Castello Sforzesco and Museo Internazionale delle Ceramiche in Faenza (2008-2009), a solo show at Fondazione Museo Pino Pascali, Polignano a Mare, Italy (2011-2012); and “Bertozzi & Casoni: Timeless” at the Museum Beelden aan Zee, Den Haag, The Netherlands (2013). Bertozzi & Casoni currently live and work in Imola near Bologna, Italy.
