We are proud to inform you that F&M Ingegneria has responded to Gianmaria Potenza’s initiative in support of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice.
The Mirano practice, for over forty years a leading company in the provision of cutting-edge design solutions in the sector of civil engineering, infrastructures, project management and sustainability, has acquired the work donated by Gianmaria Potenza to the Venetian museum’s fundraising campaign “Together for the PGC“, donating the sum of € 4,000.00 directly to the Collection.
The project was launched on 10th September 2020 and continues Gianmaria Potenza’s commitment after last spring’s “Dono Ad Arte” fund campaign in favour of the Veneto Regional Health System, which had excellent feedback and results beyond expectations.
“Mr. Sandro Favero is a great friend and collector of the Mr. Potenza and we are very grateful to him and his practice for having enthusiastically welcomed our initiative”. Valeria Loddo, Artistic Director of Gianmaria Potenza.
“As a member of the museum and of the Venetian artistic community, I am happy to be able to use my art to contribute to preserving this important institution. Art can and must make a difference because it speaks to everyone“. Gianmaria Potenza.
“The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is grateful to Mr. Potenza and F&M Ingegneria for their generosity and support during this time of crisis. Their support means our museum can continue to assure its task of making the art that is always a source of inspiration, comfort and dialogue available to all“. Karole P. B. Vail, Director of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection.
The Peggy Guggenheim Collection has suffered the consequences of almost 90 days of lockdown with a substantial reduction in free activities for the public and days open to the public. From 2nd September, thanks to its many small and large supporters, the museum was finally able to reopen the doors of the permanent collection 6 days a week, but further support will allow us to return to normal, reopening the temporary exhibitions and planning long-term openings, as well as underwriting all the educational activities.
