This self-taught potter was born in Lyons in 1913. Lucchesi moved to Vallauris in 1951, starting his studio "LUC". He made a range of objects, of note are the coffee cup and saucer sets half glazed in black and half in bright colours. In 1960 he became chairman of the A.V.E.C. (Association Vallaurienne d'Expansion Céramique) - the local professional organisation. In 1961 Gérard Damiato, his son in law, joined the workshop.
