La Vetrata Artistica: Luce e Colore
Stimulated by the works of the Casina delle Civette, the students of the "Artistic Stained Glass" course of the "Ettore Rolli" School of Art and Crafts, led by teachers, have studied the extensive art catalog by Duilio Cambellotti, Vittorio Grassi, Umberto Bottazzi, Paolo Paschetto and Cesare Picchiarini, to create their work, by weaving a weave of unpublished cuts in keeping with the original work. The works for the training year 2016/2017 will be presented during an exhibition titled "The Artistic Window: Light and Color", which will be held untile June 11th at the Dipendenza della Casina delle Civette of Villa Torlonia.
The exhibition, promoted by Roma Capitale, Assessorato alla Crescita culturale - Sovrintendenza Capitolina ai Beni Culturali - was organized and curated by the teachers Vanessa Ascenzi, art history and teaching professor of Art History, Giovanna Chieppa, glass artist and teacher and by Zètema Progetto Cultura. Considering the uniqueness of the exhibition space, the works presented are inspired by the works of the artists who collaborated in the making of the Casina delle Civette, proponents of the revival of the artistic stained glass in the first decades of the 20th century, of which the Casina is a symbol.
In some cases, students have chosen to produce stained glass, such as Vittorio Grassi's 'Dew' and 'Dancer', other students have decided to translate the illustrations for childhood books or engravings into glass by Duilio Cambellotti.The students have been called upon to make an interpretive effort, imagining the colors and atmospheres of works we know only through black and white images. From a technical point of view, in some cases, they had to translate designs and works that were not designed to be made in glass, by weaving a weave of unpublished cuts with respect to the original work. The exhibited works were made by: Eleonora Bernardi, Giuliana Catenaro, Roberto Arduino Celegato, Vittorio De Angelis, Tullio De Santis, Giulia Fiaschetti, Gabriella Innusa, Laura Oliva, Lidia Pasquali, Paola Quattrini, Annamaria Resse, Maria Rizzuti and Laura Storaro.
