About

Steel sculpture produced in a limited edition of 250 pieces. Each piece is engraved with the signature of Dino Gavina, Centro Duchamp, ""Fiori Futuristi, Giacomo Balla and the identification number. It all began in 1968 with a letter to Dino Gavina by Luce and Elica, Giacomo Balla's daughters, where they asked the Bologna entrepreneur for a reproduction of the Futuristi Flowers drawn by their father. The first wooden models by the Duchamp Center were reproduced with absolute precision thanks to the passion of Cesare Bellici and Elio Marchegiana, who brought the original drawings by Giacomo Balla to Bologna and here they followed with their utmost care the work of transposition into the technical drawing, essential element for their production. Afterwards, thanks to the development of new technologies based on CNC machines, the metal sheets could be easily cut, thus producing materials at a speed which was unbelievable only a few years before. This new element let Dino Gavina use steel to create the ""Flowers"" by Giacomo Balla and make those flowers which were previously made by hand in colored wood even more Futurist. This is confirmed by Balla's writing, found at the base of draft cardboard of a Futurist Flower: "to be rebuilt with the materials of your time.
