Caruso had a very rich artistic and exhibition activity which he combined with the didactic and editorial one. Caruso is the author of the most important ceramic manuals - translated all over the world - and his public interventions are scattered between the Galerie Les Champs in Paris and the Evangelical Church in Savona, Japan, at the Tokai Hospital and City Hall , and Portugal, at La Rotunda, in Coimbra. As his sculptures are found at the railway station of Gijon, Spain and at the subway station of Marseille.
