Peacekeepers..... The War of Colors!
The Peacekeepers are the brainchild of two young artist Alessandro Padovan, who uses the Screw Art technique to create unique and original works appreciated all over the world.
The artist wanted to create lacquered resin sculptures that reproduced the classic and timeless plastic toy soldiers, loved by adults and children alike.

Alessandro Padovan (born in 1983) is a self-taught artist who graduated with a Mechanical Technician degree. He began his art career in 2012 as part of a duo by the name of Drill Monkeys Art Duo and then continued solo starting in January 2017.

This Screw Art technique is not well known, but in the last 7 years Alessandro has displayed his works in galleries, auction houses, and art fairs in Italy and abroad, and at important benefit gala events.
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.
