FOUNTAIN AND SEATS - DEL CARMINE SQUARE, FLORENCE

Il Bronzetto in addition to the line SOFTIRON designed specifically for public spaces, exteriors such as squares, gardens or interiors such as museums and theaters, has created the fountain and seats for Piazza del Carmine, a famous Florentine square.

ORA ET LABORA

The fountain, entitled "ora et labora" to symbolize the importance of Florentine craftsmanship for the Oltrarno district, is a true work of art, born from the creativity of the young student Leonardo Panchetti: three nails at different heights are fountains for adults, for children and for dogs. The initiative of the tender promoted by the Municipality of Florence and won by the young creative, took place as part of the restoration of the square. The rewarding contents were originality, feasibility and contextualization.

ARTIGIANER

The 'Artisagner' Cosimo De Vita, a mix between a designer and an artisan, signs the design of the seatbacks, in brass and bronze, of the seats in the square. These reproduce the facades of the most important churches in Florence. A work created partly by the hands of the master craftsmen of the Bronzetto and partly through the use of digital technologies, useful for design and execution (rendering, 3D models, numerical control machinery etc.).
