Monotype is a graphic process halfway between painting and printing, which makes it possible to create a one-of-a-kind image.
An image is painted in oil, tempera or ink on a matrix, which can be a sheet of metal, wood or glass, then printed on a flat surface. Experimenting with this technique will help us to discover the link between works of art and their expressive means.
Casting in plaster
A unique opportunity to enter the studio of Arnaldo Pomodoro and experiment with some artistic techniques. A monthly appointment that opens a special space to the city of Milan, the workshop and a place for reflection and the work of the Maestro, designed by Vittorio Gregotti between the 60s and the 70s, in continuous evolution.
In the foundry
Arnaldo Pomodoro has always relied on the experience of the Fonderia De Andreis, one of the last still active. The Foundry was opened in 1964 by Giuseppe De Andreis after a lifetime of working in the most long-standing artisan workshops in Milan. In the hands of Giuseppe, known as "Pinella", the works of the greatest avant-garde Italian sculptors took shape: Arturo Martini, Adolfo Wildt, Giacomo Manzù, Marino Marini ... and even the doors of the Duomo.
