Euromobil’s patronage – the principal way in which the Lucchetta brothers profess their love of art – is an ongoing commitment. The company is currently the main sponsor of Uruguayan sculptor Pablo Atchugarry’s iconographic exhibition “Vita della materia” (the Life of Matter) staged in Palazzo Reale’s Cariatidi hall in Milan from 27 October 2021 to 30th January 2022.
More than 40 artworks produced throughout the years have been chosen to communicate with the evocative architecture of the location. In the last twenty years the artist's work has concentrated on large marble sculptures – all worked and sculpted in person – but he has recently made room for works carved directly out of wood or emerging from centuries-old olive tree trunks.
The Lucchetta brothers deeply appreciate Pablo Atchugarry and have supported him at previous events; to name but one, at the “Città Eterna, eterni marmi” (Eternal city, eternal marble) exhibition at the Mercati di Traiano Museo dei Fori Imperiali (Trajan’s Market - Imperial Forum Museum) in Rome in 2015. Gruppo Euromobil has been promoting "cultural adoption” for many years now, not only by focusing on great artists such as Pablo but also by backing emerging young artists in their territory of origin – the province of Treviso – and in Italy as a whole. Pablo Atchugarry is definitely one of the most famous artists patronised by the company to date: in particular, the purpose of this exhibition is to pay a tribute to the career of an artist who, thanks to his international fame and to his presence in the most important collections, has been able to blend the globalised taste of all the collectors and experts throughout the world.
By offering its support to over 500 exhibitions all over the world, for more than 40 years Gruppo Euromobil has been the best expression of the modern art patron. “Pairing art with industrial production makes our way of doing business decidedly different and gives a cultural boost to all the people involved with our company - explains Gaspare Lucchetta, Gruppo Euromobil’s managing director. Directly experiencing the art world, breathing the same air as - and spending time with - artists, encourages us to look ahead towards new horizons”.
A catalogue, as well as a precious limited edition of 60 copies – each of which contains a wooden sculpture by the artist – published by the Skira publishing house, accompanies the exhibition.
