The opinion of the Governance
“Coral, with its colors ranging in multiple shades of red, represents in its polychrome essence the maximum expression for the joy of living. Joy that rises to the highest emotional states,thanks to the skilful art of Platimiro Fiorenza. Art and matter, a perfect combination of beauty, elegance and harmony between what nature gives us and thanks to the authentic mastery of a great artist, becomes an imperishable work of art “
