A sculptural installation erected on the Fondamenta Santa Lucia in Venice has been made by the artist Andreco with the collaboration of De Castelli. Two different and significant identities with common values that have collaborated to represent the effects of climate change

The signature style of De Castelli meets the creative approach of the artist Andreco in the Climate 04 Sea Level Rise work – dedicated to the theme of sea level rise – and installed in Venice; it is the fourth stage of the Climate itinerary project. A project that will gather until January 27th events, actions, and interventions, to raise public awareness of the effects of climate change.

The installation is a modular structure with a base of 18 sq m and rising to 6.5 m in height, consisting of seven elements to form a multi-faceted landmark; a golden sculpture that overlooks and protects a series of wild plants, highlighting the vulnerability of the lagoon system and the importance of protecting the natural ecosystem.

Andreco, who has also a Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering, collaborates with De Castelli in the field of Artificare/Art&Business, a program by the Iuav and Ca 'Foscari Universities, which explores the intersection opportunities between artistic and entrepreneurial practices.

Two other works are being carried out: a large Wall Painting by the artist that can be admired along the banks of the Canal Grande in Fondamenta Santa Lucia and a talk that analyzes climate change in an artistic and scientific way.
