Why Aluminum?

Aluminium can be forged, modeled, laminated, like hot wax in the artist’s hands. It lends itself to take on the desired forms and volumes.It is lightweight (a third of steel), shiny, soft, durable, with good electrical and thermal conductivity, 100% recyclable with an energy cost equal to one twentieth of that necessary for its first melting. Visually intriguing, with its unique characteristics, aluminum is the true contemporary material.

Why 13 artists?

Because aluminum is the chemical element of the atomic number 13.


Premio COMEL Deodato

Title of VI Edition

Among the properties of aluminum, plasticity is a real celebration of artistic freedom, a call to the artistic impulse and changeability that creative hands like to fully experience. Flexuosity, turning, twirl, hairpin turn, snaking, meander, bight: these are the possibilities the metal lends itself, in order to be sinuous and take us on the ways of art.
