About 17 years ago, in February 1999 a business idea was born, the intention was to realise copies of frescoes by several artists. Gianni Mazzoran and Marco Gelmetti, on the advice of a friend Giovanni Antonini, decided to take advantage of the experience they had accumulated in the work of restoring antique plaster on the walls of old buildings, bringing them back to their original state. The difficulty in reproducing faithfully, designs that were often extremely complicated, convinced them of the need to find a way of transferring them using the tracing or stenciling technique, something similar to what the artist used to mark out on the plaster the outlines within which he would then spread the colours.
Active in Milan, he was part of the “Futurist” movement and, after of “Novecento”. His painting aimed at the reconstruction of monumental and plastic values, by Impressionism repudiated, which he rendered in great compositions with the fresco technique. Later, the expressionist elements, latent since the first stage of his art, got the upper hand, leading him towards a more severe and formal analysis. The original of this reproduction is in a private collection.
Our collection finds in “Classicism” its inspiration for the selection of its subjects and the techniques for their execution.
