This summer, Grand Hotel Alassio has decided to surprise and delight you with an artistic journey created in collaboration with prominent Italian art galleries.
This exhibition of artwork in our prestigious spaces, has been organized in collaboration with: Daniele Comelli, whose Online Gallery proposed a range of works by young and talented international artists; Matteo Bellenghi Modern and Contemporary Art, which led us to discover contemporary artist Paolo de Cuarto - “l’artista del muro vintage sulla tela”; and with Alessandro Bellenda’s Galleria d’Arte L’Image in Alassio, with its rich collection of advertisements.
The important collaboration with the Piedmontese maestro Elio Garis, with his insatiable desire to harmoniously combine diverse and uncommon materials, such as stained glass, plaster, sand, and many others, has allowed us to display his impressive multi-media sculptures.
Last but not least, the collaboration with Tommy Goodman that with his pieces inspire the viewer to strive for such greatness and strength as his protagonists.
