Eugenio Carmi was an Italian painter and sculptor. He is considered to have been one of the main exponents of abstractionism in Italy.
In the early 1950s, Carmi abandoned the informal style and adopted a geometric rigor in his works. His works often used factory materials such as welded steel and iron. Between 1958 and 1965 the artist collaborated with the steel company Italsider (later Ilva) and was responsible for its brand image.
In 1963 he founded the collective Galleria del Deposito with Flavio Costantini and Emanuele Luzzati. A close friend of Umberto Eco, he collaborated with him on several projects.
In 1966 Carmi was invited to display his works at the Biennale di Venezia.
The mission at the heart of Theodora is to contribute to the wellbeing of children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centers by providing visits from professional performers who have been trained to work in a medical environment.
At the Theodora Children’s Charity, we believe that laughter is the best medicine. Our Giggle Doctors visit children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centers across England. By combining music, play, magic and storytelling these professional performers bring magical moments to brave children in challenging times. We believe that EVERY sick or disabled child should get the giggles that only a Giggle Doctor can bring.
Our Giggle Doctors are professional performers, highly trained to work both in the medical environment and with children with disabilities. They come from a wide range of backgrounds and bring with them a variety of skills (among our team are actors, entertainers, magicians, musicians and singers). The training consists of a rigorous schedule of artistic and medical workshops, which cover topics such as child development, infection control, child bereavement and the impact of illness and bereavement on families.
