On 10 September 2020 in Fiesole, in the beautiful park of the Maestro's villa-studio Sauro Cavallini (1927-2016), among ancient shrubs and suggestive bronze sculptures, is on the program "Sound Sculpture", the charity concert with which Davide Friello will enchant the audience thanks to the meditative melody of the Handpan. The musician will be accompanied by the dancers of the school "51% Dance" of Pontassieve and will present the evening Francesca Romeo e Piero Torricelli.
"I had attended the Friello concert at the Verdi Theater in Florence and the idea of associating the works on display with the sweet sound of the Handpan, a steel musical instrument that, in a certain sense, resembles a sculpture, came to me automatically", tells Teo Cavallini, son of the artist and president of the Cavallini Study Center.
The charity initiative was also born thanks to the collaboration with the Cure2Children Foundation, which for years has been involved in treating children suffering from oncological and blood diseases, and with the patronage of Town of Fiesoleand Tuscany region and Regional Council of Tuscany.
“The proceeds offered for the“ Scultura Sonora ”event will be entirely devoted to the care of the children that Cure2Children takes care of, - specifies Teo Cavallini - we would like this evening to represent a great virtual smile for these children”.
The event will be preceded by a apericena served at 19.30 pm in the sculpture park in compliance with the spacing rules imposed by the Covid-19 regulations.
“Due to the Covid emergency we had to impose a limited number and compulsory reservations. Fortunately, the evening will always take place outdoors and it will be easier to keep a safe distance between our guests ”.
In the park of the studio house there are many monumental sculptures made by the Master between the sixties and the nineties.
“A space open to the public free of charge, upon reservation, which can be visited with a guide. A place you do not expect, in which there is a continuous dance of monuments ”.
Cavallini has worked on major works destined for prestigious public places such as the "Monument to life", located at the Human Rights Building in Strasbourg, or the "Monument to Peace" (1970) located at the entrance to the Congress Palace in Florence on whose base the artist wanted to leave the inscription “I have carved for you men a monument to love and peace”.
"We have taken over these values imprinted in bronze and today we try to promote within this artistic center some charitable initiatives such as that of "Sound Sculpture", raising funds for a serious foundation at the service of children ”, concludes Teo Cavallini.
A great opportunity to do good, and visit one of the most evocative gardens in the Fiesole area, among the great illuminated monuments of Sauro Cavallini.
To participate, the booking (offer € 20).
