Collectors, yacht owners, designers and art enthusiasts from all over the world to celebrate the Italian brilliance
Sanlorenzo – the “atelier” of the nautical market founded in 1958 and today second shipyard in the world in the construction of made‐to‐measure motoryachts above 24 meters – in partnership with the historical Tornabuoni Arte gallery, is currently taking part to the preeminent international modern and contemporary art show in North America: Art Basel Miami Beach 2016 (December 1st‐ 4th).
On that occasion, Tornabuoni Arte has curated the exhibition onboard the Sanlorenzo SD112 (34 meters), an installation art dedicated to the Italian monochrome, one of the essential pictorial theme in the 1900s, that developed in the same years as the Cantieri Navali Sanlorenzo foundation. Hence the name of the exhibition “1958, the birth of two legends: Italian monochrome and Sanlorenzo shipyard”.
A significant number of important artworks by the main exponents of this movement are on display onboard the motoryacht: Lucio Fontana, Enrico Castellani, Alberto Burri, Paolo Scheggi and Agostino Bonalumi.
For the occasion, Sanlorenzo SD112 is moored at the splendid “Casa Clara” villa, on the Venetian Islands, located between Downtown and South Beach, just a few minutes away from the Convention Centre, where Art Basel Miami Beach will take place.
This union between boating and art gave life to an exhibition of inestimable value, highlighting Sanlorenzo’s always deeper involvement in the artistic world.
Sanlorenzo, in fact, has always displayed a keen sensibility for high‐value artistic themes, also related to the world of architecture and design , especially during the project and furnishing phases of each model, built according to the style and requests of every single owner.
