The mosaic artist from Ravenna Anna Fietta exhibits in Genoa as part of a project of Ravenna Pharmacies
"Flowers", The exhibition of mosaics by Anna Fietta, has arrived at the Palazzo Ducale in Genoa. From 11 to 20 March the work done in the workshop of via Argentario in Ravenna and inspired by flowers, will be in Genoa as part of a project involving community pharmacies in Ravenna and Genoa.
'After the success of the exhibition on' Saraghine 'in 2015 - the mosaic artist Anna Fietta explained - we decided to try again, this time drawing inspiration from flowers, we have made so many different and varied ones, looking to Byzantine iconography but also reinterpreting the subject in a modern and original way. Let's say that our quotes have been acknowledged '. There are the petals of Galla Placida, those which in turn alternate with the stars, the lilies of Sant'Apollinare in Classe, the festoons, reinvented and resized, of San Vitale. But there are also original productions like the flowery meadow that was born from the imagination of Anna Fietta, coming in different versions, from the flooring to the wall. And yet again there are chandeliers in the shape of flowers. There are flowers to hang, to be supported, with long stems to keep in a vase. To name but a few":
In Genoa more than 25 pieces will be on display. Constant throughout the production is a small and distinctive hummingbird, which replaces the traditional dove of Ravenna mosaics. The flower production is continually evolving and every day is enriched with new ideas and new work.
The exhibition project in Genoa is the result of collaboration between Anna Fietta and Ravenna Municipal pharmacies. For two years the mosaics by Anna Fietta have been a source of inspiration for the packaging of the cosmetic line 'Mosaico' of the Ravenna community pharmacies. The line is becoming very successful and other pharmacies in other areas of Italy, have shown interest in the product. Which includes those of Genoa who have begun to market the product. Hence the request by the Director of the Genovese pharmacies, to organise an exhibition in one of the rooms of the impressive Palazzo Ducale particularly in Genoa.
