Dal progetto all’oggetto is the workshop title that three artists conceived and led: Nico Vascellari, Ettore Favini and Christian Frosi, with thirty Elica employees; the event took place at Fabriano Elica Headquarters.

The initiative aimed at thinking about the complex process that turns an ordinary object into an artwork; the artists, according to their own working methods and poetics, developed the common issue to industrial and artistic productions: the project role and the theoretical processing.

Ettore Favini decided to recreate, with the participants, an art system micro-model, with critics, galleries and artists. Christian Frosi realized a more abstract and emotional path: he asked participants to tell an intimate part of theirs through one or more personal objects. Finally, Nico Vascellari designed a shuttering intervention that radicalizes the reflection on the project-object relation: he proposed an experience disconnected from the material production.

The results were exhibited during an exhibition at Fabriano Elica Headquarters, in Mergo (AN) plant, and in Serra San Quirico (AN) plant.
