Benedetta Pompili (IT, 1995) is a social and critical maker based in Amsterdam. A dedication to materials with a focus on their narratives and environmental impact identifies her practice. She rethinks making techniques and their aesthetics toward circular making. Her research aims to share knowledge, motivate care, and retrace tradition by thinking and acting in an interdisciplinary way.

She is among the recipients of the Stimuleringsfonds Arita Residency (2024) and of the Building Talent Grant (2022). In 2022, she has been a resident at the Rijksakademie van beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam as a Tech Fellow of the ceramic department, as well as an artist in residence at Sunday Morning EKWC (European Keramik Work Center) in 2021. Her works have been displayed at Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten, Design Museum Gent (BE), and at the New York SVA Bio Art Lab (US), among others. 

In 2018, she graduated with honours with a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Design and Ceramics from ISIA Faenza (IT). Urging to approach making through an environmental and conceptual lens, in 2019 she attended the Social Design Master's at Design Academy Eindhoven (NL), where In 2021, she graduated with a nomination for the Gijs Bakker Award.
