Boris Savelev spent a month in Madrid working on a new series of images. The results are a beautiful series in which colour, shadow and urban forms produce a deep contemplative mood - a window that reveals a complex Russian soul.

Factum Arte has been commissioned by the Fondazione Cini to produce another exhibition based on the foundation's remarkable collection of pages and manuscripts. The books will be recorded using a system specially designed by Dwight Perry using a mirrored optical glass prism made by Ben Gaskell. The design allows for precise and safe recording.
Increasingly, artists and institutions require a new type of mediator to turn their ideas into physical realities. Based in Madrid and Bologna, Factum Arte is dedicated to digital mediation, transformation and the production of works that redefine the relationship between two and three dimensions.
Factum Arte consists of a team of artists, conservators and technicians devoted to masterminding projects and solving problems, activities which have resulted in original solutions to highly specific challenges. The development and application of new technologies are accompanied by the highest levels of craftsmanship at every stage of the process. Factum Arte always works to the standards required by both the commercial and museum communities in which issues of conservation and archival permanence are of paramount importance.
The work carried out by Factum Arte is inherently original and diverse. It ranges from major conservation facsimiles to archival print editions, from the very big to the very small; in fact we will get involved with anything involving a sensitivity to (and practical understanding of) the transformation, mediation and manipulation of information.
One of the key elements of the exhibition Le Arti di Piranesi: architetto, incisore, antiquario, vedutista, designer (The Art of Piranesi: architect, engraver, antiquarian, vedutista, designer) is a 12 minute animation of Piranesi's Carceri series made by Gregoire Dupond at Factum Arte specifically for the exhibition. This series of 16 visionary images, originally etched by Piranesi when in his late 20's, shows the workings of his imagination, merging his architectural ambitions with his obsessive interest in antiquity. Watching Gregoire Dupond's animation is literally like entering Piranesi's mind. A CD containing both high resolution reproductions of the prints and the complete video is available in our Shop.
