LINKING TERRITORIAL SKILLS
A Matter of Perception: Linking Minds – Palazzo Litta, Corso Magenta 24, Milano
In collaboration with: Made a Mano / Torart
The collaboration between Made a Mano directed by Master Rosario Parinello and designer Emmanuel Babled illustrates the reinvention of precious artisan resources. Several works, including a wall installation, are presented. After a thorough exploration of the extraordinary skills of Made a Mano and the peculiarities of the lava stone, Babled reinterpreted this tradition in an original key. The works are composed of lava stone elements, vitrified at 900 degrees in different colours. The realisation has been entrusted to the craftsmen of Made a Mano, specialised in the traditional manufacturing of ceramic and lava, in Caltagirone, Sicily. The craftsmanship and wide colour range guarantees the uniqueness of each artefact. The event includes other marble work by Babled, produced in collaboration with Torart (Carrara), a leading company specialised in digital marble sculpting.
