Contemporary (Faux Marble) Ruins by Roberto Sironi

I have been following Roberto Sironi‘s work for the last two years and he somehow always end up in one of my presentations a trend lectures. This year I was lucky enough to meet him at the Milan Design Week and hear a bit more about his current project crafted in faux marble in first person.

His latest project Ruins for Carwan Gallery juxtaposes elements of the classical and contemporary era, joining mirror-polished bronze pieces with a marble simulacra named Marmo Artificiale di Rima made by skilful Italian artisan hands. The marble pieces look surprisingly ‘real’, but truth is they are made with an old plaster technique that was already used when the Tsar of Russia asked to renovate his Winter Palace in San Petersburg.

Nicolas Bellevance-LeCompte of Carwan Gallery asked eight designers to create a collection to exhibit a Milanese palazzo not knowing the context of it, and it turned out the environment for Sironi’s art work could not have been a better fit.
