‘Sognando Itaca’ by Franco Mauro Franchi

at Franchi Umberto Marmi Headquarters in Carrara


Sculptures of spectacular black fibre glass form a series of artwork displaying sirens and mystic creatures placed on white Carrara marble blocks.

This wonderful outcome of combining art and paying tribute to the area’s specific resource, shows much love to highlight nature and artistically perspectives pointing out the female mythology and transform it into modern spirit.
