La Flotta dell’Arte

The Flotta dell’arte (fleet of art) was born as a cycle in 1998. The idea is to build a fleet of warships with books, magazines and art catalogs. Each individual ship has its own name and personal number. Usually the number is random, while the name is that of an oil color. The ships were armed with small firecrackers. There is a general catalog in which the cards of every single ship leaving the yard are collected.
