Sanremo_ Casa Sanremo 10th Anniversary_67° Festival di Sanremo_ February 5th/11th, 2017
On the occasion of Casa Sanremo’s 10th anniversary and 10 years after starting his “artventure”, Daniele Basso was invited by Sharon Alario to collect the emotion of the Sanremo Festival in a universal symbol, a trophy to be awarded to 10 outstanding Italian figures who do not belong to the music business and “lead their life with great passion and power”.
A precious artwork yet immediately grasped in its meaning, created by joining a rose lit up by red and green Swarovski ® crystal beads to recall the Italian flag, a symbol of the Sanremo township but also Italy’s astounding beauty, with a treble clef, a tribute to the Sanremo Festival, the worldwide-renowned best Italian music contest. “Awarding this trophy recalls the Italian stylish gesture of offering a flower as a gift, a red rose which is the symbol of passion, feeling and love for life, music and our country!”
