Ulderico Pinfildi begins his career as a nativity scene artist in his father’s workshop, an intensely lived debut among clay, argil and tools of the trade, that allowed him to mature a marked sensitivity towards Neapolitan history and traditions. He defines himself as a worker, a craftsman of the nativity scene and directs his attention to the figure of the Neapolitan shepherd, who becomes his main object of study and research.
During his long artistic experience he teaches modelling and restoration at ASSEFOR and at the Suor Orsola Benincasa University and participates in important national and international exhibitions. His works have been reviewed by critics and scholars in authoritative magazines of the area”.
