“One month. On artist”: the showroom of the Fonderia Del Giudice, in Greve in Chianti (piazza Matteotti 5), as well as showcasing the wonders created by the artisan know-how of metal working of the foundry based in the artisan area of Meleto, opens the doors to the art and beauty of local artists.
On Saturday, April 16 (at 5.30 pm), the exhibition “Gente” (until May 1), by Francesco Battaglini, a talented young sculptor, was inaugurated.
By presenting one of his projects born during the days of total lockdown, of the pandemic beginning in March 2020.
“An interesting project – says Sarah Del Giudice – that arises from the need for human contact lost during the days of total distancing from others, in which the artist creates very faithful portraits of friends and loved ones, procuring that “company”, or “Social contact” that the reality of those days had taken away from us”.
Saturday 23 April, from 5 pm, the artist will be present at the showroom to model another character live to add to the square.
The future plans (which we will gradually take into account) for the moment are as follows.
📅 From 21 may Fulvio Pratesi
📅 From 18 june Carlo Fagiani
📅 From 9 july Tommaso Bartoloni
