Logotype of Unesco cultural sites of Regione Veneto
Year: 2010 Promoted by: Comune di Verona Service required: competition of ideas to create the logotype and the graphic coordinate image of Unesco cultural sites of Regione Veneto (in cooperation with Franco Molon, VI)
The work has been managed by Studio Gabbiani in collaboration with Franco Molon TheSign graphic studio for the competition of ideas published by Comune of Verona. The logo presents and stylizes the Regione Veneto divided in hexagons, to communicate in an immediate way the unitariness and the multifaceted structure: the nucleus and the singularity of the sites create a net that makes the total image legible. The hexagon represents typical aspects of Regione Veneto: the historic and cultural aspect that reminds the walled towns and the social-economic one refers to the busyness, a hive where the single reality contribute to an organized system. The project represents the values and the characteristics of Veneto and its four sites of competition, as realities connoted by historic and artistic characteristics. The logo permits the easy addition of future Unesco sites, through the activation of other hexagons that become reality and sense little by little. Its development, accompanied with a study on the nature of sites, leads in the realization of four images that represent coherently, in a sort of overhead view, which captures the main elements that characterize the sites: Verona and its river, Vicenza and the Rotonda stylized plan, Padova and its botanic garden and Venezia and Canal Grande.
Year: 2010 Promoted by: Diocesi di Acerra Service required: competition for the liturgical adjustment of the Acerra cathedral (in cooperation with Franco Molon, VI)
The project, elaborated for the Diocesi of Acerra, starts from the consideration that the Cathedral is the result of stratifications and interventions that determined, over the years, as a non-organic all-together in terms of design and functionality. The intervention of liturgical adjustment aims to retrain the spaces and the functions, through net marks that reorganizes, in a coherent way the altogether ness around the cross of the naves with the transept under the cupola, new centre of celebration. The choice of "liberate" the space of the altar and the sacramental meeting (in front of presbytery) is motivated from the consciousness that the liturgy is "a space that makes space" to the present acts of the Lord, source of eternal life. The biblical-patristic image of "river of Life" is the iconologic theme that connects the whole composition. The main pole of celebration gravitates around the altar-holy communion, rising from a new basement in which design, respectful of the existent, completes clearly the altar, ambo and the site of presidency. A semi-transparent "veil" and a crucifix above the altar underline once more the centrality of celebration, without hiding the pre-existents of presbytery and chorus. The celebration area is connected with other elements and significant functions of the blessed space of the Cathedral, establishing a new dialogue. In particular the baptismal font and the Rossella Petrellese's tomb are emphasized in a renewed symbolic note in the end of nave. Geometric pure forms and noble materials like marble and stone carved in flat and smooth surfaces, in harmony with the pre-existents, are the main theme of the intervention. On those forms an artistic intervention is inserted, of matter, rude and irregular, as a script that rests on the light.
