26° Simposio Internazionale di Scultura su pietre del Friuli Venezia Giulia

Marmo Clauzetto

Itinerari nel Rojale

Il 28 febbraio 2024 l’area del centro civico è stata impreziosita dalla scultura realizzata dall’artista Stefano Sabetta, durante il 26° Simposio Internazionale di Scultura su Pietre del Friuli-Venezia Giulia.

L'opera è stata donata all'ANFI dal Comune di Reana del Rojale e dal Circolo Culturale Il Faro, in memoria dei tre finanzieri, S. Ten. Aldo Antonio DAL MORO, Brig. Sereno BERINI e del Fin. Emanuele BONINO, barbaramente trucidati nell’agosto del 1944, come ricorda anche la targa che è stata posta alla base della scultura.


It addresses the natural world, looks to organic forms and stops in stone their transit as an offering of perpetuity.

Crescere, the sculpture's title, underscores the concept: it encourages the idea of transformation and change, but contrasts with the material's fixity and its firm temporality. A monumental sculpture, without a plinth, then soars sinuously upward. It seeks balance in the parts that spring from the same stump and tell of circularity and possible alternations. The interplay of solids and voids stands in dialogue with space and light, while in the treatment of the surface, the interior and exterior of the different parts contributes to the intensely dictated sculptural colorism of fullness and emptiness, interior and exterior that the work articulately offers.

His design idea was answered in Clauzetto Marble, which Stefano appreciates for its personality "that one needs to get to know," he says, "and get in tune with it as with a living being."

Stefano Sabetta

Born in Rome, he attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome and specialized in sculptural design in 1997. In 1998 he moved to the Academy of Fine Arts in Carrara, gaining experience in marble processing and technology and attending the most important workshops of the masters. In 2001 he graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Carrara. He has been a member of ENAP (National Italian Protected Authors) since 2005.

His artistic career is full of different activities: exhibitions, events and creation of public and private monumental works in marble, granite, travertine, iron and bronze in Italy and abroad. His sculptures are inspired by the forms of nature, sublimating the poetry of creation in marble material with special attention to the formal tradition of classical Italian art. His works can be found in several countries around the world.
