SONIA MARCACCI VELATHRI ART GALLERY SAN GIMIGNANO

SONIA MARCACCI   BRONZE INSTALLATION

Sonia Marcacci was born in Pisa and now lives and works in the countryside of Casole d’Elsa. She gained in 1989 the goldsmith’s qualification from the Tuscany Region. In 1996 she graduated in Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera, in Milan. A year later she founded the company ‘Prototype’ in Milan, and by 2004 was creating jewellery based on experimentation and the modeling of new shapes with the ductile and pliable materials silver and bronze, enriched with hard and semi-precious stones or wood. Upon returning to Tuscany, after various experiences in 3D processing and her daily life living in contact with nature, she became motivated anew. A part of her work dedicated to nature, is R/RdSV Serie (Revaluation of Vegetable Waste), the presentation of the green parts of tomato or garlic plants in Vegetable and in Bronze, unique pieces in free composition with the aim of making ‘desirable’ what is normally discarded.
