Matteo Fato, Cosa Naturale, 2020 (approx.)
The mind is in the likeness of a pine cone, which we carry as a representation of our pineal gland. Drawing a pine cone is a cerebral self-portrait, with the scales of all memories and all notions. It is our intimate, fatal compatibility with Nature.

Matteo Fato for the day of the contemporary, the great annual event, promoted by AMACI, which celebrates contemporary art by encouraging the participation of as many subjects and realities as possible to strongly promote and bring out the network of contemporary, national and international.
The artist Matteo Fato lets us enter in his studio telling us about the portrait through his works. The video was made for the GENTILE COME UN PORTRAIT project – curated by Marcello Smarrelli – conceived as part of the 50th anniversary of Elica, which starts from the presumed self-portrait of Gentile da Fabriano in the altarpiece of the Adorazione dei Magi (1423) to recompose , thanks to the mark left on the canvas by each participant, a new, metaphorical portrait, a collective image of the company.
At the Ermanno Casoli Foundation, we believe that creativity is the most important resource that humanity has and art is its greatest asset. This is why we asked the closest artists to tell us what they did in this period, what their thoughts and wishes were during these long days of isolation. We have collected the contributions they sent us on our Youtube channel that we invite you to visit. THANKS to the artists who generously responded to our invitation. Now it’s time to restart, all together!
HOW CAN CONTEMPORARY ART GENERATE INNOVATION IN THE COMPANY?
In this book, through FEC projects with artists, trainers and companies, the authors articulate a working Method, born from a decade of experience in the field, which documents the effectiveness of the collaboration between the art world and the business company world.
Desirescope was born from the North Star, which has always been a point of reference for travelers on Earth. It is an ideal telescope created to find our deepest wishes lost in the meanders of everyday life: who knows if looking through it will helps us to not lose ourselves anymore.
