LUCA BARBERINI Tessere sogni
The VII Biennial of Contemporary Mosaic of Ravenna meets the city of Riccione in a precious public space like that of Villa Franceschi, presenting the exhibition "Tessere sogni", this is the title of Luca Barberini's exhibition.
It is a lively story in thirteen mosaic artworks (several of which were created specifically for this project) belonging to the artist's most recent thematic production, dedicated to the theme of dreams.
A very personal interpretation of the dream through the material act as an imaginary action that replaces a concrete, real, direct action.
After the success of Oceandipity, a personal exhibition proposed in May in Palazzo Rasponi dalle Teste (Ravenna, Italy) on the occasion of EMD / European Days dedicated to the marine environment; the artist from Ravenna, with his irreverent and visionary art, proposes a new compositional ensemble in thirteen mosaic works, which also includes the brand new Folla, a work created for the city of Riccione on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of its foundation.
Then there is Super Heroes Project Unveiling, prototype of the competition bike inspired by the creativity of the mosaic with the futuristic technology provided by the bicycle manufacturer SOMEC of Lugo di Romagna. An unprecedented artistic project presented in recent days at the MAR of Ravenna with great public response.
