26-3-2013 Le Livornine, a series of art postcards by the well-known Livornese artist Marc Sardelli

Fulvio Tasca (owner of the local publishing and printmaking company, Editasca), and Anna Nosiglia came up with the idea of promoting both the city of Livorno and one of its most respected artists through a form of communication which has in many ways been superceded by emails and text messages. For many of us, the postcard is an object of nostalgia, just like the images painted and drawn by Sardelli between the late 1950s and the 1980s.

Within the boundaries of Livorno's historic Parterre park in Viale Carducci, a host of new inhabitants are about to be installed: Project Parterre - a collective project involving 34 prominent contemporary artists - will fill the park with animals and beasts of literary and oral tradition, imaginary creatures that have come about at the hand of these artists and which will make the Parterre into a unique urban park of contemporary art, and the first in Italy with a literary-ludic theme.
