Giovanni Calisti dedicates himself to art studies and in 1996 gets the qualification of “Maestro d’Arte della Ceramica” (Master of Ceramic Arts). His big passion flew into very appreciated painting and sculpture. He diversifies his activities from creation of artworks to modelling wash basins for a long-established factory in Civita Castellana named ICA. In 1974 he creates SCARABEO, a factory producing exclusively bathroom accessories that makes a name for itself in the European market in few years. In the middle of the nineties he designs different ranges of basins effortlessly. To this day, these ranges are some of the most appreciated of SCARABEO. Always searching for new stimulus, he charts new courses thanks to his clear strategy based on design.
