Marcello Aversa


Introduced to clay by his father when he was a kid, Marcello Aversa started working very early in his family’s workshop, which has produced bricks for wood-burning ovens for many years. When he was a young man, he understood that the Neapolitan crib was his greatest passion and he wanted to keep alive this local tradition. So he travelled across the Sorrentine peninsula making cribs for churches and sanctuaries, at the beginning using nativity figurines made by others. But at a certain point, he started modelling clay to make very tiny figures (from 8 mm to 12 cm tall) and creating complex nativity scenes.
