An event promoted by the Ermanno Casoli Foundation will be held at the Italian Cultural Institute in Tokyo on Thursday 24 November at 11.30 to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of Ariafina, a joint venture between Elica and Fuji Industrial. To seal this relationship, which goes beyond business, Elica and the Ermanno Casoli Foundation have commissioned a work to the artist Gianluca Malgeri, bearing witness to how contemporary art is increasingly a founding value for the Fabriano company and how the Foundation manages to develop successful cultural paths to promote our artists even beyond national borders.

“Their findings enrich our understanding and offer new avenues for future work, in which I sincerely hope that the next generation of researchers will tread with courage and curiosity alongside artists, workers, managers, engaging organizations like those described in this book. May they also have the good fortune of working with as generative and far-sighted a partner as the Fondazione Ermanno Casoli”. Ariane Berthoin Antal
Fondazione Ermanno Casoli and Elica are pleased to announce that the winner of the Ermanno Casoli Prize –which has reached its 19th edition and is for the first time held at the ElicaMex headquarters in Querétaro, Mexico– is Mexican artist Jorge Satorre. Satorre joins the world of Elica with the project Pelusa, which will be shown in an exhibition curated by Francesco Pedraglio and Marcello Smarrelli, that will open on December 7, 2021 at the ElicaMex plant in Querétaro. The work is the result of an articulated process that involved over 70 ElicaMex employees through drawing, engraving and sculpture.

HUNGRY FOR WIND. FABRIZIO CRISÀ DESIGNER

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.
