Mistery and wealth of the rocks
INTUITION, SCIENCE AND EXPERIENCE: ORIGIN AND DEVELOPMENT OF A PROJECT FOR A new approach to BEAUTY AND WELLNESS.
The intuition: Artist Paolo Colombini is a porphyry sculptor. While working with this stone from the Dolomites, he recognised and investigated the potential of this element in the field of cosmetics.
The scientific research: Prof. Antonio Bettero, a scientist at the University of Padua, supported by Prof. Fabio Brunetta and his thirty years’ expertise in cosmetics production, analysed the benefits of the Dolomitic water and developed an innovative biotechnological process capable of conveying the active ingredients of the substances deep into the skin.
The experience: Vittoria Chiappero, capitalising on her expertise in the field of marketing and integrated communication, has committed to the project and created and launched along with an experienced team of professionals, Eau d 'Altitude Dolomitic Water.
Paolo Colombini was born in the heart of the Dolomites, in Fornace, Trentino. His artistic sensibility was nourished by the extraordinary and mysterious manifestations of those landscapes in an interior continuous dialogue with nature.
Paolo cuts the stone, opens it, communicates with it, and metaphorically brings it back to life thanks to strong strokes of colours, pure energy and vitality. Stones are for Paolo like living beings, “millions of years have given them a particular energy; albeit different from each other, some of them stand out for their character”. Paolo, the artist, captures this diversity and emphasizes it.
Paolo Colombini’s works are part of private collections in Italy, England, Austria, Germany, USA and France, and a collection of his works is permanently exhibited on the isle of Certosa in Venice. Some of his works, monolithic objects of great visual charm, are displayed at important national galleries.
