The sculptor Fabio Viale reinterprets a symbol of Venice

58th Venice Art Biennale 

11 May – 24 November

During the Biennale di Venezia the central volume of the exhibition itinerary in the new Padiglione Venezia, at the Giardini della Biennale, will be enhanced by the works of the sculptor Fabio Viale who reinterprets the bricola, one of the symbols of the city on the lagoon, in Margraf marble.

The artist has used Fior di Pesco Carnico, a patented type of marble with delicate tones (from gray to pink to white), ivory veins and a rich grain, for which Margraf owns the only existing quarry in the world.

For Margraf, the participation at the Venice Art Biennale represents another opportunity to spread the culture of marble on an international level.

The same Fior di Pesco Carnico marble will also be used for Arcolitico, a monumental work created by Raffaello Galiotto: a parabolic arch with a height of 14.5 meters located in the new Area Margraf of Gambellara, in the province of Vicenza.
