Stones as art

Villa Paradiso displays some art works by architect and designer Erica Zanella, part of the series that merges art and design in striking contemporary sculptural items, “Castones”.

Capturing the concept of space, each piece is distinguished by an emptied silhouette whereby the void truly gives shape to the object, allowing the spirit of the maker and the imagination of the viewer to reveal the nature of the piece.

Castones are handcrafted solid gypsum monoliths reminiscent of stones: mixed only with water, they evoke natural, primitive shapes that capture the rock’s plasticity.
