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.

The Motherland Calls

“The Motherland Calls!” is the name of the #colossal statue placed on the hill near the city to which it is dedicated: Stalingrad.

Besides being one of the Seven #Wonders of Russia, it’s among the tallest sculptures in the world and a work by man with truly impressive characteristics.

☞ Do you know…

‣ With its 171 ft only the body exceeds the Statue of Liberty (New York) by 26 ft; while if we consider also the sword they are further 108 ft, for a total #height of 279 feet. The #weight despite having been lightened over time, is around 660 tons greater than that of the Eiffel Tower (Paris).
Finally, the #steps that develop from the base of the hill to the foot of the monument are 200 to symbolize the days of the Battle of Stalingrad


‣ The mantle – which we highlighted here in #red – whose only suspended part weighs 300 tons, recalls the #Nike of Samothrace to reinforce the allegory of the warlike, majestic and victorious “Mother Russia”
