Angelo Ungania

ANGELO UNGANIA (ITALY, B. 1905)

Angelo Ungania was an Italian artist and sculptor, born in 1905. He studied at the Royal School of Ceramics. In the early 1920s, he worked as a decorator. In 1924, he lent his work at the artistic ceramics, Melandri-Focaccia factory, working with the company to introduce the casting technique in Faenza, Italy. In 1930, he collaborated with Pietro Melandri for the creation of the ceramic panel of the Madonna del Roseto, commissioned by the Hospital of the Infirm of Faenza, placing even his signature alongside that of the master. From the 1930s, he began traveling to Italy, collaborating with various manufacturers, including Montelupo Fiorentino, the Grace of Deruta and Perugia, the Salamandra, the Cantagalli, in Florence and the Fanciullacci.


In 1941, Angelo won the Faenza Award. At the end of the 1940s, he invited Lucio Fontana to create some works at his studio. In the 1950s, he moved to Ruta of Camogli, in Liguria, where he organized a ceramics workshop in his villa. Subsequently, during his short stay in Faenza, he collaborated occasionally with the Bottega Casadio Faenza.
