Le porte Italia. Venetian painters. Sinopia.
Equally special were our collaborators on this project, which became a masterpiece.
Le Porte Italia was founded 30 years ago by Enrico Lenarduzzi who wanted to bring to life the traditional Venetian history of handmade decoration.
The artists of Le Porte Italia have studies at the Academy of Arts in Venice and Florence and their collaborations go to the masters of Murano glass and ancient fabrics which allows them to take on any project, from a single element created to complex projects such as Castello di Casole , Egerton Hotel, Ashford Castle, Gran Canale, Maison de la Mer, Palazzo Molin, Palazzo dell’Angelo and recently, the Casei Timiş mural.
Most of their work is in the United States, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Austria, Portugal and recently the Middle East and India. You can also find them at Il Salone del Mobile in Milan – where we also discovered them – Maison d’Objets in Paris and Decorex in London.
Marco Mazzilli and Giuliano Amendola, the two Venetian artists who in a record time of two weeks made the 21 meters of mural at Casa Timiș, used a technique made famous by Michelangelo in the Renaissance, SINOPIA, which represents the stage of drawing a preparatory sketch by creating small points that follow the preliminary outline. After the completion of this step, the drawing is progressively covered with a layer of dust that will represent the starting point for the work carried out.
