Giorgio Vigna

Vigna biopic

Giorgio Vigna (Verona, 1955) trained in art in his hometown, Venice, as well as in Rome and Milan.

His works – sculptures, jewelry, site specific installations, - are made in a variety of materials such as glass, copper and paper. His subjects comprise earth and water, fire and wind.

The works from the series Acque are vase-sculptures made in Murano Glass and copper, in which glass symbolizes water. In 2013 the Museum of Castelvecchio in Verona hosted the exhibition Stati Naturali, for which Giorgio Vigna created, for the fountain of Carlo Scarpa, the permanent installation in glass Acquaria.

His works are in public and private collections, such as:  MAD, Museum of Arts & Design, New York, USA; The State Hermitage Museum, St. Petersbourg, Russia; Honolulu Museum Of Art, Honolulu, Hawaii; Museo di Castelvecchio, Verona, Italy; Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, New York, USA; IMA, Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indianapolis, Indiana, USA; Olnick Spanu Art Program, Garrison, New York, USA; Designmuseo, Helsinki, Finland; Civica Raccolta delle Stampe Achille Bertarelli, Castello Sforzesco, Milan, Italy; Musée Barbier-Mueller, Geneve, Switzerland; Collezione Bellini Pezzoli, Castello Sforzesco, Milan, Italy.
