Silenus of Naxos in lava stone created by Laura Talio for the TV broadcast “Mezzogiorno in famiglia”

Laura Talio

Blu Arte was founded in the early 90s by the will of the painter of Giardini Naxos: Laura Talio. She started to “create” with her own hands the objects and after she painted them, going beyond the technique of oil on canvas.

Within a small room and with few resources, he succeeds in self-taught to create her first works. In addition to compositions of lemons and terracotta vases, she specializes in the artistic decoration of Etna’s lava stone. The lava stone lends itself to timeless decorations of tables, facades of countryside house, advertisings signs for commercial activities, etc.

BluArte – I due Giardini di Naxos

In a couple of years the creations acquire the beauty that can be admired today in the shop.

Blu Arte – I due Giardini di Naxos in Via Tysandros, 78 of Giardini Naxos (ME).

Here is narrated the Sicilian history and in particular of Naxos. We pay tribute to the generous sea that has nurtured families of fishermen and citrus fruits that have made the country famous beyond the sea.

A particular devotion can be seen towards the Sicily of paladins and poets. The ever-eternal character is King Frederick II  who has made the island more sensitive to art, poetry and literature.

After 30 years, Blu Arte becomes a brand of hand-crafted ceramic art. The production is entirely followed, from the design to the final stages of glazing and cooking. Precisely for this reason, one product is never the same as another.

If there is not a snowflake the same as another, why claim that it is a craft product?

To date, two generations collaborate for the design and creation of objects, as the daughter, the architect Stefania Alberici, enthusiastically, has entered the business, taking care of various aspects, among which the collections Middle Ages, Sicilian Cart and Diversity makes us unique.
