Sorry, nothing in cart.
Fabio was one of the first artists to join my project. I remember he invited me for an aperitif in Montecatini to speak about this. It was a very pleasant meeting, during which various ideas on his contribution to the project arose, resulting with the creation of a series of works made with the technique of the collage, thought to be used on my t-shirt. These t-shirt have been chosen for the project “I help Meyer 2016-2017”, proving Fabio’s willingness to contribute with us to the project of donation carried out by Fondazione Meyer, which is an excellent medical facility our region has the honor to have.
