The choice of the name “Artgender” derives from the consideration for which the brand that identifies a particular company that operates in the sectors of event planning, publishing and communication has never been used; for us art is a real type of human being, that is, who is deeper. Does not exclude anyone but renames a category, composed of very different people within… elsewhere I think, origin and direction; but, united by a single factor: the artistic one. Anyone can be or feel like an artist as long as he is concerned with producing or simply approaching any form of expression. Our identity is necessary, in things, in people, in words, in ways… that teaching contributes to formation ‘individual evolution.

Shadow of the evening

Masculine features that stretch out excessively upwards, keeping the proportions of the #body in spite of the head that remains small. This statuette, whose height does not reach 60 cm, is a #bronze votive work, belonging to Etruscan art and dating back to the third century BC.

☞ Do you know…

‣ The name “Shadow of the evening” so poetic, could only be an #invention of a writer such as Gabriele D’Annunzio. The original popular recognition instead assimilated it to the craftsmanship coming from the Volterra area, which has always been the cradle of “bronze experts”

‣ Very ancient sculpture but with a #design so contemporary as to inspire the great 20th-century artist Alberto Giacometti and that still makes it a true icon of modernity. An almost supernatural figure that recalls the long shadows at #sunset
