What about Parasio? The 'Basilica di San Maurizio' is the biggest #church ⛪️ of all #Liguria . It hosts the spoils of San Leonardo from Porto Maurizio, who is the #patron of the 'Via Crucis'.
The #Naval ⚓️Museum was born in 1980 according to the commader Flavio Serafini's initiative: it is divided into 14 different sections and contains ancient on-board instruments, maritime paintings, uniforms and other instruments or tools.⚓️
The #Crib Museum owns a crib made by the Genoese sculptor Anton Maria Maragliano: it is composed by 113 #statuettes , created between 1724 and 1741. 🇮🇹
This is Carlos Rojas, one of the artists in residence @medalta. He will be here in the Library Theatre tomorrow at 7pm to talk about colourful statuettes from 19th century France called Santibellis (the “beautiful saints”), which are currently on display in the Library's lower level.
Carlos is a Mexican-born artist who lives and works in Montreal, Quebec, Calgary and Medicine Hat, Alberta. His research is about how identity is impacted by migration; specifically, it is about how his own identity was transformed as a result of installing his practice in Canada.
Don't miss this great talk! .
#FüreyaKoral (1910–1997) is one of the #pioneering#ceramics#artists in #Turkey . Known for her wall panels, #Koral worked in a variety of media such as #tiles , #statuettes , #plates , and also created household items. She started working on ceramics after she was diagnosed with tuberculosis, while receiving treatment at a sanatorium in #Switzerland . She was a self-taught #artist and her works were mostly ignored during her lifetime. Seeking to push the limits of ceramics beyond its function, she was inspired by the art of ancient civilizations of Turkey, #Mexico and #EastAsia —#Japan in particular. Her work is commonly known to carry a mix of #Western and #Eastern artistic elements.
#Füreya Koral was born in #Büyükada , Istanbul. Her father was Emin Paşa who was a notable soldier and statesman in the Ottoman Empire. Similar to her aunts Fahrelnissa Zeid, Aliye Berger, Ayşe Erdem, and her uncle #CevatŞakirKabaağaçlı , Koral was keen on music, painting and #literature .
She studied at the Lycée Notre Dame de Sion #Istanbul until her final year, and then received her diploma from the Private Jewish High School in 1928. She enrolled at the Department of Philosophy at the Istanbul University Faculty of Literature in 1929. Because of her father’s illness and mandatory retirement, the financial situation of the family declined, and she quit university before graduating.
In 1930, she moved to Bursa after marrying the farm owner Selahattin Karacabey. The couple divorced in 1932. She made her second marriage to Kılıç Ali in 1935, who was a close friend of #MustafaKemalAtatürk . Following #Atatürk 's passing, the couple moved back to Istanbul.
Exhibited at Macka #Art Gallery in Istanbul in 1985, these works were later awarded the Sedat Simavi Visual Arts Prize. In 1990, Koral exhibited terracotta figurines titled Walking People, alongside works by forty artists who joined the #exhibition With Respect to Fureya Koral on her 40th Year in Art, organized by Macka Art Gallery. The artist passed away in 1997. #Doodle#SeramikSanatçısı#happybirthday#photoofday#gununkaresi
