Artistic fountains of Piazza della Libertà

Author: Italo Bolano and Tosco Andreini

Title: Artistic fountains of Piazza della Libertà (1996/1997)

The two artists have made the artistic decorations of the fountains.

Italo Bolano decorated the facade with two ceramic paintings sized approximately 1 x 1.50 and 0.65 x 6 m. The support is made of refractory material treated to withstand below freezing temperatures. The tiles of the upper part are placed in a large steel frame and the water falls down from above. The theme is still the one of freedom.

Tosco Andreini decorated the back of the fountain with the installation "Freedom is Young", which celebrates freedom as the true value of people and nations, to freedom as a value in becoming and linked to generational changes. The work is a monochrome high-relief, depicting two young people looking upwards following a flock of doves flying to a sunny disc that has a physical and ideal meaning.
