Antonio Sant'Elia, by birth a native of Como, world famous architect, precursor of Futurism, a legend unscathed by time… One hundred years after his death, Sant’Elia becomes the absolute protagonist of an exhibition based both in Como and in Milan. The Superintendencies of Como and Milan both wish to celebrate this anniversary by converging all his drawings and projects.
The Como Art Gallery, the Novocomum and the Triennale of Milan will be the venues of a single exhibition track that has been studied to better understand this artist who, in his short life (he died at the young age of 28 years), left many drawings and projects without having the opportunity to see their implementation. A warm thank you to architect Luca Ambrosini, who cooperated with the Ministry of Fine Arts and Landscape of Milan, along with Arch. Artioli (for many years the Superintendent of Architectural Heritage and Landscape of the Provincial Administrations of Milan, Bergamo, Como, Pavia, Sondrio, Lecco and Lodi). We have been involved by the Municipality of Como and the Milan Triennale as Technical Sponsors of the exhibition’s venues at the Milan Triennale and of the Como Art Gallery, providing all the paints required to prepare the exhibition. Our Framaton Seta has once again been chosen for its beautiful final aesthetic satin effect that enhances all the works displayed.
At the Art Gallery in Como, where an extensive series of drawings is displayed, the walls have been painted with Framaton Seta in the shade of beige-neutral hazelnut brown, as decided by the architects in charge of the exhibition fittings. Moreover, the exhibition will also include some contemporary works specially created for the occasion, particularly featuring two canvases by Fabrizio Musa, an artist who is very dear to us, who has always used Framaton Seta for his works!
Instead, at the Milan Triennale, all the walls of the four halls of the Aulenti Gallery where the artist’s works will be displayed have been painted with Framaton Seta in attractive shades specially chosen to highlight the artist’s projects, precisely red, sage green and vinaccia red. But that is not all of it... the 40 drawings displayed in halls 2 and 3 of the Gallery are framed by the onsite creations of Fabrizio Musa, namely four murals portraying certain details extrapolated from the works of Sant’Elia, once again produced with Framaton Seta!
