design di Simona Marta Favrin
Designed by architect Simona M. Favrin and created with Forme d’Acqua, the project is the result of a combination of water and glass, two elements deeply linked to Venice, its history and its true identity. In Controcorrente, colored glass fishes challenge the current, in a tenacious fight against gravity: it is a tribute to resilience, in glass but, above all, in life. The work is made of Murano glass by maestro Nicola Moretti, using the traditional techniques of Murano artistic glass, glass rods, murrino and glassfusion, revisited in a contemporary way through the experimentation that has always characterized his work. The jersey then turns into a fountain, the water overflows from above sliding along the steep and inflexible walls, like fate. The work combines water and Murano glass in a positive message, in contrast with the negative image commonly associated with jersey. Art is therefore an insrument to face our fears, the beauty against terror, the passion against violence.
