"Viaggiare dentro" by Saverio Filioli.
Dimensions: 50 x 70 cm
Technique: Mixed media on canvas
The work is a symbolic and archetypal representation of a journey into the interior of one's ancestral soul, on the rediscovery of the spirit.
Saverio Filioli's works are mainly expressionist and abstract and are characterized by having a strong impact and an impetuous and impulsive pictorial flow that allow the greatness of soul and spirit to be conveyed without being influenced or reduced by the patterns of reason.
Much importance is placed on the use of shapes, colors and the support used which is often obtained from recycled and readapted pieces such as old furniture and objects now in disuse. Conceptual and symbolic forms that merge and are layered, giving meaning and depth to the works.
Filioli's works have been exhibited and displayed in various Italian galleries (Galleria Romano - Gallipoli, Galleria L'oleandro - Castellana Grotte, Galleria Spazio 40 - Rome, Museo Faggiano - Lecce, etc ...) and abroad at the ART 11 gallery in Canada (Montreal) and in Luxembourg.
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.
