The project Svuotatasche by Alfredo Aceto was born inside Fonderia Artistica Battaglia during the month of residency of the Open Studio. With this project the Artist has the opportunity to follow the process of his work from the creation of the original model to the patina, with the assistance of the artisans, and to have an exhibition space in Battaglia where he can present his new sculptures for the first time. The exhibition will preview three new bronze sculptures by Alfredo Aceto accompanied by a poem by Thomas Liu Le Lann.
Alfredo Aceto's project was made possible through the support and collaboration of:
