Mario Schifano was an Italian artist, painter and director. Along with Franco Angeli and Tano Festa, he was a leading figure in Italian and European Pop Art.
A firm presence on the international cultural scene of the sixties, he was considered a prolific and exuberant artists who loved all society things. He was passionate about new painting techniques, and among the first to use the computer to create works, processing images on the computer and transferring them back to emulsified canvases (the "computerized canvases").
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.
