Alessandro Marrone’s Sculptures in Italy & the USA


una delle sculture del Maestro Alessandro MarroneIn-house ILICA Artist Alessandro Marrone is having a very exciting and successful 2012 after receiving commissions from both sides of the Atlantic for his unique works. His most recent sculpture entitled “Minerva” has been installed in front of the new CNA headquarters (Confederazione Nazionale Artigiani) representing over 4000 local industries in Arezzo, Italy.

“La Rotta del Sale” –(The Ancient Salt Route)
An Italian Celebration Dating Back to the year 1200

Cervia today is a seaside resort located on the Adriatic coast of Italy. However in antiquity it was one of the most important centers for harvesting salt, a commodity in great demand by the Republic of Venice. Since ancient times, salt has been considered a precious cargo since it was the only means to preserve food. By channeling the Mediterranean Sea water into a large system of salt pans and allowing the sun and wind to evaporate it naturally, the Cervese were able to create a very lucrative salt market. This precious crystalline mineral soon became known as “White Gold”. Since it is not refined as much as other kinds of salt, it still contains traces of other minerals, including iron, magnesium, calcium, potassium, manganese, zinc and iodine, which gives it a uniquely sweet taste.
