an exhibition by FRANCO MAURO FRANCHI

 Franco Mauro Franchi was born in Castiglioncello, a small town by the sea near Leghorn, in 1951. He is a sculptor, painter and sketcher. He experienced sculpture for the very fist time when he was a child, in Tarquinia, a small town in southern Tuscany where some relatives of him lived. Tarquinia is situated in the heart of the ancient Etruscan territory and is home of the Etruscan Archaeological Museum. Young Mauro Franco visited quite everyday the museum, being fascinated by those figures lying on their sarcophagus, looking at the horizon. The marks of the chisel on stone sculptures and the fingerprints of the author on terracotta ones made them look very contemporary, and made Mauro’s imagination soar.
Now he has the opportunity of showing his works in Fiesole, home the ancient Etruscan people.

Opening time: everyday, from 10 am to 7 pm
