Der Tod in Florenz (2008)

silk-screen print on t-shirts
edition of 100

A series of T-shirts distributed for one year as a "welcome kit" to participants of the prestigious artists-in-residence International programme of Villa Romana in Florence, the oldest German art prize.
This was my project for the exhibition: Per Adesso Noi Siamo Qua - Villa Romana, Florence, curated by Lorenzo Bruni and it was an attempt to deal with different elements i found there: mainly about the life of german artists in residence in Florence, the deep history of Villa Romana, Romanticism, Thomas Mann, Luchino Visconti, and Florence itself.
