The Paolo Sandulli Atelier. A Master of art in Praiano!

Book now

The workshop of Torre Assiola, a few minutes away from Hotel Margherita

Italy is made of art. In the most remote corner of every single city, town or village lives an artist with a story to be told on a thousand canvases and sculptures and to be shown to the world, creations and creatures of curious and talented souls.

Paolo Sandulli has been living for more than twenty years in Praiano, a few minutes away from our hotel with a view of the sea. His terracotta works and his sculptures are part of private collections in Italy and abroad, and so are his paintings, that led him to study and work with great teachers in Naples, Rome and Paris.

Meeting him and admiring his work is a unique experience, starting from the evocative venue where his atelier is located, inside probably the most beautiful tower on the entire Amalfi Coast: Torre Assiola, built by Carlo d’Angiò in 1278 to hide from the Saracen invasions.

In this place, which seems to strive to touch the blue sea and sky, time often stops and silence offers inspiration. Sandulli shapes, creates and transmits emotions through peculiar feminine busts in terracotta, whose heads are ironically decorated by hair made with sea sponges. Every one of these sculptures has its own name, personality and a personal biography created out of an accurate inner search!

Life close to the sea represents an essential element in Sandulli’s work, celebrated and preserved in his memory by sketches, portraits and sculptures of the old fishermen of the Amalfi Coast, real artists of fishing and free men that had the privilege to work and live close to nature.

We strongly recommend you book a visit to the atelier Paolo Sandulli, you will meet a master of art and his philosophy, that will tell you the importance and the value of making time for knowing, feeing and learning, a precious gift, very far removed from material goods and wealth.

During the meeting you will also have the privilege of entering the Torre Assiola and to buy or to order, if you want, unique and beautiful creations.

Imagination creates reality, said Richard Wagner.
And that’s what we must do in this particular time of history. Travel with our imagination to those corners of the world that make us happy. Use your good vibes mode to imagine your next destination, next adventures, friends you’ll share your happiness with.
Let’s keep on thinking of the good things in life, and soon they will become again our reality.
💙 .

L'immaginazione crea la nostra realtà, affermò Richard Wagner.
Ed è quello che dobbiamo fare in questo particolare momento della storia. Viaggiamo con la nostra immaginazione in quegli angoli del mondo che ci rendono felici. Cerchiamo di focalizzarci solo su pensieri positivi e magari immaginare la nostra prossima destinazione di viaggio, le prossime avventure, gli amici con cui condividere la nostra felicità.
Continuiamo a pensare alle cose belle della vita e sicuramente presto torneranno ad essere la nostra realtà.

Dear Guests, Friends and World Travellers, the international community is facing the challenge of the consequences of the Corona Virus Covid-19, that starting from China, soon reached all the continents, shaking the world public opinion.

The Italian government took a very heavy but important decision, going for national restrictive measures till April 3rd 2020, regarding the free movement of people within Italian regions, but also abroad, in order to prevent further risks for the country, and the entire world.

Media and social networks are talking about it all the time everywhere, and we want to give you our live perception of what’s happening.

We are all good, our team and families are fine, and the Amalfi Coast is well prepared managing the situation with calm but very strict organisational measures.

We have decided to go beyond the preventing norms that help to contain the spread of the virus, deciding for a temporary closure of our activities until April 3, 2020, out of respect for our Guests, team and family.

We are looking at the future with hope, because we learned a lot from our past history – the long history of a country that during the years faced the adversities with responsibility, community sacrifice and strong will, to create a better tomorrow.

Thank you to all the international travel community that everyday supports us and shows us affection. Your love, even if just virtual, shortens the distance.

During this pause time we will keep on sharing our positive thoughts and the beauty of our land, keeping you informed on the current situation and giving some travel inspiration for when the time will be right for you to be back visiting us here on the Amalfi Coast.

We are still available, ready to answer all your requests and needs, as usual.

These three weeks will pass by soon, even sooner knowing all of you are there supporting us!

All the best,
Hotel Margherita Praiano, Amalfi Coast 💙
