For the garden of a private residence we have realized a monumental ornamental fountain with a maximum diameter of 8 meters and a total height of 6,5 meters in Rosso Imperiale, Grigio Carnico, Thassos, White Carrara marble and 24k golden elements.
We have completed the work with a sculpture high 2,5 meters in White Carrara and Breccia Medicea marble inspired by Atlante Farnese of the II century A.D. exposed in the archeological national museum of Naples and installed above the central sink at 3,5 meters above the ground which in turn supports an additional sink on the summit with a diameter of 2 meters.
In order to give solidity to the structure and to allow the inner passage of the hydraulic and electrical systems for the water and light games, we have created Atlante in19 elements of which 8 movable, internally emptied and shaped in order to cover and to hide a steel supporting through tube with a diameter of 20 cm.
The arms, the legs and the base have been definitively assembled on site only after the installation, the connection and the test of the inner systems.
The final weight of the sculpture was of about 1700 kilos.
Italian Contribution to the project
We have taken care of the planning of the total Atlante sculpture and of the various artistic elements of the fountain.
The technical-artistic consultation and the assistance have been guaranteed to the client in collaboration with the architect, the designers and the construction company for the whole working period in order to solve, during the works in progress, technical and structural problems and different difficulties due to the weight of the single elements, to the assembly method and to the environmental conditions or rather it has been analyzed and tested the reaction to the physical and chemical agents of the golden elements due to the proximity of the sea and so to the salt presence.
The range of samples of the ornament type and of the material combination has been important for the approval and the start of the order. Our artisan handmade manufacturing has allowed to take care and to personalize every detail during the work in progress reaching aesthetic and artistic results of high quality.
The study of a natural posture of Atlante through the realization of sketches and models suitable to facilitate functional, technical and aesthetic needs, has been very important for the optimal success of the work.
Arte 2000 has finally studied, organized and managed the most delicate phases of the installation with skilled staff.
