Here are some photos from the inauguration of my sculpture “Sun Worshipper” which took place last Saturday, the 30th of May, 2015. It was a great honor for me and I would like to thank Domenico Lombardi, Mayor of Pietrasanta, Italo Viti Pietrasanta Council member, Valentina Fogher, exhibition consultant for the City of Art, and everyone who came to the celebration. Many international sculptors – friends of mine – came to participate, along with some of the best artigiani who work in Pietrasanta. A special thank you to the Fonderia Mariani, the bronze foundry with whom I’ve worked for, for over 30 years and whose staff have become family to me.

“Sun Worshipper” (Adoratrice del Sole) is now part of the Parco Internazionale della Scultura Contemporanea Città di Pietrasanta, which is an impressive collection of works by international sculptors. You can find out more about the International Sculpture Park at the Museo dei Bozzetti’s website, linked here. Visit the Museo dei Bozzetti’s blog, linked here, for up-to-date information.

Thank you Pietrasanta!

I wrote a thank you note in Italian, which I share with you here:
“E’ stato per me una grande gioia ed un grande onore donare una mia scultura a Pietrasanta, una città che mi ha dato tanto. L’inaugurazione della scultura è stata meravigliosa! Grazie al Sindaco Domenico Lombardi, all’Amministrazione Comunale, all’Assessore Italo Viti, a Valentina Fogher, alla Fonderia Mariani, a tutti i miei cari amici scultori, artigiani, studenti del Liceo Artistico “Stagio Stagi”, al Coro Versilia e a tutti quanti che così numerosi hanno assistito all’inaugurazione. Ringrazio anche per il prezioso supporto all’iniziativa RestauroItalia di Camaiore, Autotraporti Maggi e la ditta Fracassini. Grazie Pietrasanta!”
