Claudio Capelli

For twenty-five years, Claudio has been the driving force behind Cervia, Italy’s International Kite Festival: Cervia Volante. Capelli is a noted ceramic artist, painter, and one can see his artist’s sensibilities displayed everywhere in Cervia. Kite artists from throughout Europe, Asia, Australia, and North America join him during the kite festival, as he provides them the time and space to display and fly their creations.

Claudio has created a number of beautiful kites, most featuring a realistic painting style that comes alive in the sky. Simple kite forms are transformed into living portraits of family, friends, or personalities.
