iSculpture Gallery and Castello di Casole invite you to enjoy an event that will lead you to discover how the idea of beauty, related to balance and shapes changed through the centuries.The location of the SPA is not casual. This is where Castello di Casole, an ancient Etruscan settlement, chose to place some of the beautiful archaeological findings discovered in the past years.
We hope that you will enjoy this journey from a glorious past to nowadays.
Some days ago we were in Bologna for the Arts Week and took some pills of the contemporary art scene: Art Fair, exhibition “DiversaMente” with Simona Ragazzi and SetUp Art Fair…

Some days ago we were in Pistoia (Tuscany), visiting The Salvadori Arte foundry. They makes bronze sculptures for the most important Italian and foreign artists as Barni, Mitoraj, Botero. We was there thanks to Giovanni Balderi‘s new works!
Salvadori Arte casts works in bronze using the “cire perdue” or lost wax method, the same technique used through the ages first by the Egyptians, then by the Greeks, Etruscan and Roman. This technique consists in covering with wax, that will be later modelled a refractory clay support; then another clay layer is put on the wax so that is encased between two masses of clay. By heating this clay container to a high heat, the wax melts and drips ut through some purposely made holes. The liquid alloy is then poured into the thin space left by the wax, usually just a few millimetres, then the allow cools and hardens the bronze cast has been accomplished. At last, through oxidation and thermal treatment, the bronze receives the patina.
Arte a Colori Gallery and iSculpture Gallery are pleased to inform you about their new exciting project Meet Art, in collaboration with My Tuscany Experience.
The centres of excellence located in the territory are a huge advantage in terms of tourist appeal and attract every year a growing number of visitors. The Valdelsa project is part of an initiative for the development of sustainable tourism promoted by the Regione Toscana with Hotel Bel Soggiorno, Hotel Sovestro, Relais della Rovere and Hotel Villa San Lucchese.
Take the chance to experience the results of the “Project Val d’Elsa – Enhancement of Places of Excellence and Knowledge”,which has the objective to strengthening the tourism offer of the Elsa Valley with new experience packages. This is the context of the project “Meet Art“, coordinated by Francesca Maria Sensi, whose leitmotif is the Italian language as experience and its visual and verbal vocabulary. Every Friday there will be an “aperitif with the Artist” at one of the facilities participating in the project. The artist, in front of his work, will explain all sources of the emotional idea that becomes a work of art, creating a language exchange with guests about the subjects, materials, and the world of art and craft… And other seeds for the future of the project!
