Fabrizio Plessi is an Italian artist, who works in Italy and Germany, mainly in the field of video installations.
In 2000 he created the Italian pavilion for the Hanover Expo, with a monumental 44-meter installation. Called the Vertical Sea, it represented a continuous, uninterrupted flow of blue water.
In 2011 he curated the Venice Pavilion for the 54th Venice Biennale, with the same theme, on a smaller scale; screens projecting the flows of water were installed on boats, mounted in a vertical position.
The "Associazione AmicidiSean"—FriendsofSean Association—was founded to support Sean Hadfield and other people with his condition. Sean is a 24-year-old man who, at the age of 9, suffered an irreversible spinal cord injury, leaving him in a wheelchair. Due to the injury, he needs 24-hour care, which carries a high financial cost.
The objective of the association is to offer people with disabilities the highest quality of life possible with all the necessary care needed. The FriendsofSean Association also commits itself to giving a percentage of its funds raised to the Hospital Nacional de Paraplejicos de Toledo in Spain.
