During Fair Gifa at the Italian squares, realized by ICE (Italian Trade Commission) and Amafond (Italian Foundry Suppliers’ Association), a route between ART and HISTORY will be the real protagonist.
At hall 16 we will remember the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo Da Vinci, through the projection of a video (courtesy Museo Galileo - 1, dei Giudici Place 50122 Florence) with the simulation in a single casting of the famous Sforza horse. The same project Leonardo thought, but he was unable to realize.
Moreover we will realize an exposition of 8 beautiful cast iron artifacts (courtesy Museo Italiano della Ghisa - Ss. Emilia, 1626 47020 Longiano (FC) – www.museoghisa.org) which are from 1880 to 1920. This is something very unique, a real piece of our history!
Always at hall 16 there will be 4 works of art in bronze. The author is the award-winning contemporary artist Giacinto Bosco (courtesy Giacinto Bosco - www.giacintobosco.com). In this exposition we can see a poetic dimesion and how the imagination of the creator trasforms moulds into sculptures.
At hall 11, instead, the protagonists will be 7 contemporary works of art in aluminum created by 7 different artists who have in common their participation at Premio COMEL (www.premiocomel.it).
Premio COMEL is an Italian reality with a consolidated European activity in promoting the creative use of aluminum. This exhibition will demonstrate how a metal, combined with the artist's creativity, can take shape in many ways and tell different stories starting from the same basic technique.
