Alessandro Marrone’s Sculptures in Italy & the USA
In-house ILICA Artist Alessandro Marrone is having a very exciting and successful 2012 after receiving commissions from both sides of the Atlantic for his unique works. His most recent sculpture entitled “Minerva” has been installed in front of the new CNA headquarters (Confederazione Nazionale Artigiani) representing over 4000 local industries in Arezzo, Italy. Marrone’s rendition is based on a 15th century interpretation of Andrea Mantegna’s Minerva “Expelling the Vices from the Garden of Virtue” again using the theme of ignorance as the enemy of virtue in today’s society.
Another sculptural work, an Homage to Pope John Paul II, commissioned by Monsignor Hilary C. Franco, pastor at Church of St. Augustine Church in Ossining, New York will be ready for shipment to the States in early Fall. A reliquary, which will contain a piece of garment from the cloak of this beloved pope, features an uncanny likeness of his Holiness. It will certainly bring not only parishioners, but also visitors who wish to see a wonderful homage to a great man.
