Franca Ghitti


Costa Volpino (Bergamo, Italy)
August 2011

Franca Ghitti has created an installation for Bendotti using waste elements that form two vertical panels and two compositions on the ground, arranged symmetrically. The two panels have a regular rhythm to represent the precise rhythm of industrial production, with insertions of circular spaces inhabited by figures representing the community at work. On the ground, the two elements represent a sundial and a circle.

Forni Industriali Bendotti wanted to remember the founder Evaristo Bendotti and, at the same time, wanted to pay homage to the community of Costa Volpino through the unique artwork of Franca Ghitti, the Camuna artist who brought the art of iron to the whole world.
