About me

Silvia Beghè was born in Poggibonsi in 1959.

Since she was a child, she grew up surrounded by art and artists, some friends of her father, who was an artist and art collector too, and others met during the several cultural events that Silvia has always attended.

She graduated at Istituto d’Arte Duccio di Buoninsegna in Siena, with a great success in the ceramic field.

Immediately after graduation she opened her first workshop in San Gimignano.

In the following years she attended a seminary in Faenza (Emilia-Romagna) and a school of ceramic in Gijon, Spain: in both experiences she knew some ceramists with whom she had very important work experiences.

Now she lives in San Gimignano – Siena, where she exposes her artworks in the showroom located in Via San Matteo. Her workshop is located in Via del Masso in Poggibonsi – Siena.
