    work by Daniele Basso

    At the preview of the book "Max Blardone - oggetti, aneddoti e pensieri del nostro campione", which recounts through images the sporting events and life of the champion, the artist Daniele Basso presents the work "SuperMaxArciere". The book, created with a deep emotional content by the Fan Club Max Blardone, it is a charity project and all the proceeds will be entirely donated in favor of the earthquake victims.

    "SuperMaxArciere" is a work in two dimensions, with limited edition of 35 pieces, which contributes to the Charity Founds Collection organized by Max Blardone as recognition and incentive to benefactors who will have been the most generous at the end of the project.

    "When Max Blardone - explains Daniele Basso - a dear friend and authentic champion in life and in sport, told me about his project, I thought about the importance of Art in the physical and moral reconstruction processes of the areas hit by the earthquake, and I decide to contribute ... this is how this work is born. It is a concrete thanks, expressed through Art, to those who help these families, deprived of the house, of the assets and sometimes of the dearest loved ones, to "never give up"!

    In fact, Art helps to become aware of the world through emotions. It expresses the deepest essence of man, which finds its individual and collective identity in it. It is impossible to imagine the meaning of losing everything ... but in the midst of the tragedy and pain of the destruction of matter, it is also necessary to treat the spirit with beauty. To regain the courage to dream of the future, even better than the lost past. To celebrate life with strength and dignity, and restore luster to a wonderful piece of Italy and its culture of excellence!

    "This is how this work - continues Basso - transforms "Super Max", in the pose of the Archer, into a symbol not only of victory at the end of the race, but also of strength and determination of" who never gives up ". It means that the victory is built step by step. The arrow is a metaphor to go beyond the difficulties, in the chosen direction. To go beyond our limits, towards new challenges, with courage and dignity, transforming the drive to survival in desire and search for a better world".

    Daniele Basso, an artist deeply linked to Alta Badia, author in 2015 for the 30th anniversary of the Ski World Cup, the GIGANT sculpture at the start of the Gran Risa, is proud of this new initiative with his friend Max Blardone.

    "A project - concludes Basso - that I am enthusiastically taking his path in Alta Badia where the affection of his friends Badioti makes us all feel a little at home away from home, where the breathtaking beauty of the territory reminds us of the joy of living and inspires 'Art with feelings of great energy ".
