PEACEKEEPERS..... THE WAR OF COLORS!
The Peacekeepers originated from the idea of two young artists, Alessandro Padovan, who uses the ScrewArt technique to create unique and original works appreciated all over the world, and Antonio Monsurrò, a fashion designer.
The goal of the two artists was to create lacquered resin sculptures that reproduced the classic and timeless plastic toy soldiers, a toy loved by adults and children.
The Peacekeepers are entirely made and hand-painted in Italy and come in different Pop colors—in addition to the classic and recognizable military green.
A perfect gift idea, these Peacekeepers furnish every interior setting with a touch of style and originality. They will always attract attention, bringing back memories of childhood and moments of carefree play when imagination reigned.
Get ready for the only war the Peacekeepers know... the war of colors!
ASSOCIAZIONE BIANCA GARAVAGLIA (ABG) was founded on April 28, 1987 and named after Bianca, a girl who at the age of 5 contracted a rare form of neoplasia. It was Bianca who, during the months spent at the Istituto Tumori di Milano, drew the green and fuchsia flower that immediately became synonymous with hope and the symbol of the association.
ABG was established by Bianca’s parents. Fully aware of the many difficulties faced when dealing with infantile tumors, they firmly believed that immediate and direct support to existing facilities was necessary.
ABG's goal is to collect funds to promote scientific studies and medical treatment in the field of infantile tumors, as well as to provide first-hand operational support to all related initiatives.
The association has been operating for over 25 years now, supporting the “Struttura Complessa di Pediatria” (Pediatric Complex Unit) of the “IRCCS Istituto Nazionale Tumori di Milano” Foundation, one of the major research and treatment centers in the field of infantile tumors, where small patients from all over Italy converge.
