Crossed fingers, just as creativity and technology are crossed in this project. The sculpture by the Bolzano artist, at the core of the ‘The Applaud‘ project designed by architect Giorgio Canale, represents one of the ultimate experiments in experimentation at the fair. Unlike usual, visitors won’t see the artwork exhibited already completed and finished, but they will be able to observe it taking shape at each step of the DONATONI robot. The project thus represents the perfect synthesis between the artist’s creativity and DONATONI machine technologies.
Andrea Senorer is an internationally renowned artist, who trained at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence, the Facultad de Bellas Artes San Carlos in Valencia, and the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.

And even in the case of ‘Fragment,’ the theme of crossed fingers dates back to ancient times. In the Middle Ages, it was believed that evil had the power to reach people’s souls through their fingers. Over the centuries, the original symbolism has been lost, but the gesture has remained in common use and has even spread globally.
The project involved other partners as well, such as Cereser Marmi, for the supply of the Imperial Cameo block, and companies like Dal Prete and Polypiù.
