Sanlorenzo, one of the world’s leading producers of yachts and superyachts, in conjunction with Biennale Arte 2019, is proud to present the “Naviganti exhibition. A journey into Sanlorenzo’s shipyards” on display until November 2 in Venice at “Sale De Maria” in the Casa dei Tre Oci, a privileged campus for the formulation and cultural comparison of contemporary languages, with particular attention on photography.
Conceived as a true first hand look at what’s involved in the production process at our shipyards, the exhibition, with an ad hoc set-up curated by Piero Lissoni, Art Director of Sanlorenzo, is to feature more than 30 black and white images by photographer Silvano Pupella, who uses his lens to give us a visual tale of the harmony between craftsmanship and technology that has over the last 60 years made Sanlorenzo a veritable nautical excellence.
The evocative photographic portfolio which was put together within the La Spezia shipyard, reveals how each Sanlorenzo superyacht is the result of a complex, transversal and innovative project: each boat over 40 meters long, comes to life from the hull, forged in metal like some work of art, and on through the work of skilled local artisans who take the greatest of care with every little detail, making each pieace unique and special, thereby assuring the desired reaction from the owner every time.
The photos of Silvano Pupella thus recount the work of these highly skilled artisans whose masterful craftsmanship makes these sophisticated elegant yachts what they are, as if they were being crafted in a Renaissance workshop.
