Attilio Luigi Ametta


How did my passion for art begin?

I think I have always been fascinated by beauty.

When I was a child, I used to have a look at old books which depicted the Parthenon and many other vestiges of the past.

I was so impressed by such beauty!

In 2000 I decided to move to Bologna from Torremaggiore, the small town in the Foggia countryside where I grew up, to enrol in the Faculty of Biology.

It was the cultivated Bologna that gave me new stimulus.

Despite my field of study, I regularly visited museums, churches and historical buildings.

In 2013, I met Maurizio Nobile. I found myself catapulted into a new world: the world of antiques.

Maurizio immediately encouraged me to follow him in his work, having perceived a passion for art in me.
