History

Observing Renzo Savini's collection, we're far removed from the idea of a methodological and analytical archive. A cultured man with a classical education, he first studied at classical high school at the Collegio Alla Querce in Florence, and then took a degree in the Faculty of Law of the University of Bologna where he met Nina de Beni, student in the Faculty of Agriculture, who he would then marry.
 
His daily activity as a professional and father of a family was constantly characterised by a meticulous artistic approach with a very personal methodology. This careful research, begun in the 1960s, concluded only after the death of the protagonist of this collection.
 
The creator of our collection knew how to discern abstract forms. A single stone in silicon was, in his eyes, a microcosm in which to catch signs and forms of the macrocosm. He brought out the energy inherent in these stones with an authentic staging in the arrangement, nature thus becoming an artifice as in the ephemeral settings of the late Renaissance.
 
Stones in dialogue and in tension between them and with the surrounding space.
