March 2011

"For us it was a real eye opener to a fantastic world-debut as Enrico Bressan, Fondaco-president of a real satisfaction. The cultural project we are presenting today is the result of a work and a comparison of many months during which we worked with the objective to initiate, as in the philosophy of warehouse, a synergistic relationship, constructive and useful between city and company. This project for us to be a response to continued Enrico Bressan-period-a sort of model in response to the letter, circulated by the press this morning, with which the archaeologist Andrea Carandini and is' resigned as president of the High Council of Cultural Property . A decision, said Carandini, based on the findings of the impossibility 'of the work of protection and development of cultural heritage for the' progressive and massive decline in appropriations. For this reason the project is even more valuable. "



"This is really an example of generosity" - begins in this way, the intervention of Bishop Meneguolo, procurator of San Marco at the press conference for the restoration of the four statues of the prophets in the chapel of the Basilica of San Marco Zen. Patronage is the word most is used during the interveneti, well away from the sterility of the word sponsorship that has little to do with this project. "For us it was a real eye opener to a fantastic world-debut as Enrico Bressan, Fondaco-president of a real satisfaction.

A decision, said Carandini, based on the findings of the impossibility 'of the work of protection and development of cultural heritage for the' progressive and massive decline in appropriations. For this reason the project is even more valuable. " "The word restoration - continued Arch. Ettore Vio, the proto-Basilica in Venice was the most frequently as a synonym for the word problem, the difficulties in raising funds, so we're really happy with this new sponsorship. Concern, then, a very special, a sort of cabinet in which the history of Venice has condensed in the center one of the most fascinating of the Basilica of San Marco, the Porta da Mar, once its main entrance. " "Then the story changes, the discovery of America opened its markets to the West, difficult paths to the Venetian architect Vio-continued .- The port had lost its original meaning of the interface between faith and the promises in San Marco dates from the sea to which it overlooks. Venice willingly accepts the gift and heritage of one of its most illustrious sons and generous, card. Giovan Battista Zen and dedicates chapel to one of the most celebrated artists of the time, Antonio Lombardo. " Happy is the adjective used Dr. Annalisa Bristot for the Superintendence for Architectural Heritage, the Landscape and the Historic, Artistic and Ethno-Anthropological Heritage of Venice and the Lagoon, to define the attitude of the institution he represents. "It's important for us to stimulate the client-continued Dr. Bristot-and we are pleased that we can act on these works which form a sort of key to understanding the way the history of sculpture in Venice. We will perform a thorough investigation of campaign, especially the extraordinary polychrome still present in the statues. Surfaces are to be dealt with very sacredness. I feel I can say that this restoration is born under a good star, concluded Dr. Bristot-has, in fact, a very good patronage, that of Thun in collaboration with warehouse, a company qualified to do so, the Lares, here raprresentata Architect Mario Cherido (which shows in detail the procedure of the restoration), a careful scholar, Valentina Ferrari, a prototype, the architect Vio, who so loves his Church and supervision of the Superintendent. " The art historian Valentina Ferrari then told the story of the Zen chapel and its prophets. "From the biblical verse mentioned is satisfied not only the precise identification, but also the relationship theme that links them to other Prophets mosaic in the Chapel: The call of the people at the time, confirms the unbreakable bond that characterizes the decoration of the Porta da Mar. The concept is linked-to-read Valentina Ferrari particular location: the official portal to enter the Basilica, to the lagoon, then turned to the world with clear intention glorification of Venetian greatness manifested on the occasion of the historic meeting peacemaker. The statues are as a group fairly homogeneous and unified: the sculptor of the Prophets-ends-Valentina Ferrari is a Venetian master dictates that harmonizes the Po Valley to the prevailing local Byzantine tradition and the innovations of the Gothic side of the Alps. The dating to between the last quarter of the twelfth and early thirteenth century. "

"Proximity of values debuted CEO Paolo Denti Thun-this is what has brought us more than anything else you decide to take this path. What distinguishes our philosophy is the desire to give joy to us and to others, for example with the use of ceramicoterapia, the Foundation Lene Thun: modeling clay as a therapeutic tool to help people disadvantaged because of specific physical conditions , psychological, economic, social or family. " "Although in recent times has taken a breath increasingly international, Thun is a brand strongly linked to his native country, Italy. For this reason, in the year when we celebrate the 150th anniversary of, we wanted to make a gesture of affection, but little concrete support for the national historic and artistic heritage "continues Dr. Paolo Denti-The choice of Venice is not random: the Serenissima has always had a special place in the heart of the Countess. When he was not locked in his studio to model, she loved to travel and one of his favorite destinations was just a walk in the lagoon, as shown by the many photos of the actress in the Piazza San Marco with his sons Peter and Matthew. Just to seal this bond between the Countess and the "living room" the most elegant of Italy, Christmas is scheduled for another surprise: Piazza San Marco will be decorated by a giant nativity scene with the famous figures THUN.

"I want to speak in his capacity as the first prosecutor of the Basilica, as well as the mayor of Venice, the lawyer Giorgio Orsoni-debut of this extraordinary work that touches the heart of the city. Thank warehouse, for his spirit of service to the City and I thank the Thun, that binds the concrete actions that characterize his artistic production, the love for Venice, which marked its founder, the Countess Lene Thun is very important - continued Venice's mayor Giorgio Orsoni-this interest in the Basilica, a synergy between the company, the private, professional and blinds. Thank you, finally, the Porcuratoria because it has proven significant in follow and embrace these initiatives. I therefore welcome these new guardians of the Basilica
