Serie of 6 numbered pieces
Bronze, Marble

Fuochi is a bronze sculpture composed by 6 small heads with flame shape.
Fuochi means Fires (fuegos) en Italian, Francesca Dalla Benetta’s mother tongue. The artist is fascinated by this elemental, she consider the fire one of the most powerful sacred forces in nature, that purify and destroy.
This sculpture is a mix of experiments, both the expressions on the 6 little faces, all different, and the same game of fire in the foundry, where the challenge was to burn the small heads with different intensities.
This piece has a black and green patina.The black patina is made from the green one, after a burning process, so magical and mystical.
Please remember that this piece is part of a serie of 6, and the patina (colors) can vary a little from piece to piece (I always try to make them the most similar, but part of the beauty of patinas is exactly their uniqueness).
