Serie Imperiale

Serie Imperiale is the first work by Flavio Favelli for Valsamoggia curated by Elisa del Prete and Silvia Litardi. Favelli chooses as the subject for his work two postmarks depicting Vittorio Emanuele III (issued in 1929 and in use until 1946) which have undergone an “overprint” — the superimposition of a stamp that altered the original image. The visual identity developed for the catalogue and the project materials evolves together with the work and unfolds its three realisation stages — painting, detachment and filling.
