Studio Elica By Pastore and Bovina
"In Alto i Cuori" is part of a project born in 2009 that still continues. A pop icon like the heart reinterpreted as a wall vase with anatomical connotations and with a strong Italian character. Today there are 65 different versions, inspired by socio-cultural identity, from Ovid to Dante Alighieri to pop music, to that particular symbolism, typically Italian, which mixes high and low, sacred and profane.
A collection of heart-shaped biscuit porcelain ex-votos decorated with graphic and sculptural themes. Letters, numbers and figures painted with brush; small sculptures moulded by hand for contemporary messages written in an universal language. Every heart has its own rhythm, its own beat, its own meaning between irony and divertissment.
