Live Bid! 'Nudo Femminile' Artwork by Flaminia Lizzani
'Nudo Femminile' artwork by Flaminia Lizzani.
A femal nude drawn using rapid and continuous strokes.
Flaminia Lizzani was born in Rome where she still lives and works today. She began drawing female nudes in 1986: sketches of poses lasting 30 seconds or a minute - a brief amount of time that the artists favors in order to creat a synthesis of what is at the heart.
The artist is not concerned with faithfully or academically reproducing the female anatomical geography. Her approach is loving, a profound surge that issues from the vibrant, stubborn impulse of some works, and veers towards a very personal vision touching on spirituality.
The artist leaves it up to the sign to act, moved by the desire to show female nudity in silent meditation, in the shamelessness of thighs thrown wide open, or even in bizarre and precarious balance.
- Technique: charcoal on paper
- Dimensions: W35 cm, H 50 cm
Fondazione Laureus Italia Onlus, founded in 2005, operates in communities on the outskirts of large Italian cities.
The foundation's objective is to support young people living in challenging economic and social situations, using sports as an instrument of psychological-pedagogical support.
All the projects promoted by the foundation include the presence of educators and psychologists in the field in order to make sports activities a useful tool for reaching educational objectives.
Fondazione Laureus has created a network of area partners—including sports associations, schools, and third sector organizations—with which it creates sports-educational programs geared for young people through various initiatives. These initiatives create a community for helping children and youth in need.
Laureus guarantees the training of all coaches and social workers involved.
Since 2005, Fondazione Laureus Italia Onlus has obtained the following results: over 14 projects started up in Milan, Naples, Rome, Bari, Catania and Bologna; over 3,000 children supported; over 20 different sports activities; approximately 30 sports associations; over 20 schools and 20 third sector organizations involved; and 18 “sports legends” who support Laureus Italy initiatives.
Fondazione Laureus Italia Onlus plans, implements, monitors and directly evaluates all the projects through its staff made up of social educators, sports psychologists and project managers.
