Cave Canem: from the block to the sculpture

Published on 20 September 2016

From September, 10th, to October, 2nd, the suggestive site of “Bugazzi Quarry” in Virle Treponti, Rezzato (Brescia) will host Cave Canem, the site-specific installation of Cracking Art that will bring a pack of colourful wolves, made of recycled plastic, in defense of the amphitheatre. Pack leader, instead, a wolf realized in Botticino Classico Marble.

The istallation was sponsored by the Consortium of Botticino Classico Marble Producers and the material used for the sculpture was extracted from Lombarda Marmi’s quarries.

The event, curated by Lillo Marciano, and organized by Consorzio Marmisti Bresciani as part of the project “La Via del Marmo” counterposes materials as plastic and marble, creating a comparison between natural and artificial, modern  and ancient art; dimensions that come together in perfect harmony through the representation of the pack of wolves.

Cave Canem installation will be open to visitors, until October, 2nd, on Saturdays and Sundays, from 15.30 to 20.30.

Throughout the duration of Cave Canem, small plastic animals will be sold to raise funds, which will be destined to Rodolfo Vantini School of arts and crafts in marble, the oldest institute in Lombardy, with its headquarters in Rezzato (Brescia).
