“Juventus-Torino” by Francesco Tricarico – Signed by Pirlo
By bidding on this auction, you will have the chance to take home the “Juventus-Torino” artwork made by the Italian singer and artist Francesco Tricarico as a tribute to the legendary Italian soccer player Andrea Pirlo.
Painting is gestures, signs, movements and actions, which is why it’s similar to soccer. In the blink of an eye, the artist/player has to choose where to direct the hand/foot, understand the direction of the ball/brush, simplify or enrich his actions.
This is not certainly for all, but only for those artists who bring about a stroke of genius with their painting or feet by taking risks.
Francesco Tricarico, known for his songs, decided to dedicate his paintings and drawings for the one-of-a-kind genius Andrea Pirlo.
In view of the much-awaited Andrea Pirlo’s farewell to football match “Notte del Maestro”, Tricarico turned the impossible paths of the best landscapes, strokes and inventions done by Pirlo on the pitch into brushes and colours.
The former midfielder Andrea Pirlo has even autographed the painting, thus making it a truly unique piece of memorabilia. The artwork will be also autographed by the other players who will take the field during the “Notte del Maestro” match.
Technique: mixed media on canvas.
Dimensions: 80x80 cm.
The charities associated with Andrea Pirlo's farewell to football game are: Il volo di Pietro O.N.L.U.S. and the Vialli and Mauro Onlus Foundation for Research and Sports.
The Vialli and Mauro Onlus Foundation was established in Turin, in 2003. At the heart of its activities are the love for life and the desire to act decisively and with transparency while maintaining a strong relationship to the scientific research and therapeutic approaches against cancer and ALS. The funds raised on this occassion will go toward the creation of the new Nemo Clinical Centre in Brescia, aimed at caring for those affected by neuromuscular diseases.
The association Il volo di Pietro O.N.L.U.S. was the brainchild of Pietro's parents, friends and family, after Pietro prematurely died on June 29, 2016 when he was just 33 months old. Pietro was a cheerful and caring child. The main purpose of the organization is to keep his memory alive and, in doing so, help other children who are in need. The association, being inspired by the principles of human solidarity, pursues the following goals: the development of charitable activities in favor of children and adolescents who are abandoned, deprived, poor, sick or in need of medical care.
