Cecco Bonanotte’s History: No.1

Cecco Bonanotte was born at Porto Recanati, a small town facing the Adriatic Sea in the Marche (Italy), in 1942. With his father, a furniture maker, he naturally found enjoyment of creating things using wood and instruments.

He entered a local art school with his brother, Raffaele, when he was 11 years old. Then, in his 17, he moved to Rome to attend a prestigious school, the Sculpture Course at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Roma.

From his school days, his gift was highly valued by Pericle Fazzini, a great Italian contemporary sculptor, and so on. Winning an important award in Italy, he began to teach Drawing and Decorative Modeling at the Accademia di Belle Arti though he was only 24 years old, as an unprecedented case. He began to distinguish himself from his youth.
