Zakopane Style lands in California, USA

Hi bloggers,

do you remember Marta Norenberg’s article on Polish architectural Zakopane style!?? If not, check it out at this link because we have discovered that a brand-new Zakopane-styled-cottage is under construction in Sierra Nervadas in California (USA), 40 miles north of  Lake Tahoe! The place is called Grizzly Ranch.

On November 19th 2010, Paul R. Bolt commented on Marta’s article informing us about the project, as well as about its architectural connections with European carvings. As Paul explained: “we are utilizing this beautiful architectural style in an alpine project, a compound to be built in the high Sierra Mtns […]. The compound will be appropriately named Zakopane, and we will be incorporating European wood and stone carvings.” The team is travelling and reasearching among European and Asian architectural sites, in order to carefully reproduce the style’s details.

The project is currently in the final planning phases. Constuction of the first building will be starting on April 2011, and will consists of a 200 square meter Caretaker’s Cabin. Architectural style of the Tatras Mtns will be used; and an European-styled-wood carvings executed in the village of Jepara (Java, Indonesia) will be incorporated.  In addition, antique stone flooring from several temples in China, as well as stone carvings from several workshops in Xiamen, Fujian Province, China will be part of the decoration.
In Stage Two – Paul specifies – “we will construct a Main Hall of 600 square meters with grand stone fireplace, formal eating and kitchen areas, and multiple bunk room/sleeping areas for guests.”

Production is by “a world-class architectural firm from Bozeman, Montana, called Pearson Design Group. Larry Pearson and his team are perhaps the number one design team in North America, when it comes to log and stone.  Because of their involvement, the entire project will be promoted and printed in magazines and books around the world.”

Thank you Paul, we will certainly keep in touch throghout the process, and we are looking forward to see the final realization of the Grizzly Ranch!

‘La Città degli Uffizi’ continua … a Castelfiorentino!

READ THE ENGLISH VERSION AT THIS LINK.

Il Comune di Castelfiorentino, l’Assessorato alla Cultura e il BE–GO Museo Benozzo Gozzoli stanno organizzando una nuova mostra nell’ambito del progetto “La Città degli Uffizi” – ideato dal Direttore della Galleria degli Uffizi Antonio Natali al fine di promuovere  le realtà museali ‘minori’ attraverso il prestito di opere d’arte normalmente conservate nei depositi della Galleria.

La mostra, la prima in Valdelsa di questa tipologia,  è intitolata La Città degli Uffizi – Benozzo Gozzoli e Cosimo Rosselli nelle terre di Castelfiorentino. Pittura devozionale in Valdelsa e si terrà  a  Castelfiorentino, presso il BE – GO Museo Benozzo Gozzoli nel periodo dal 30 Aprile – 31 luglio 2011.

L’intento è quello di creare le condizioni affinché il Museo Benozzo Gozzoli  possa da un lato giungere all’attenzione di un vasto pubblico, a livello nazionale e internazionale; dall’altro,  contribuire alla valorizzazione e conoscenza del patrimonio artistico, architettonico e naturale del territorio circostante.

Il territorio, con i suoi connotati storico-artistici,  diventa così protagonista e si prepara ad accogliere importanti opere d’arte collegate storicamente e artisticamente ai maestosi tabernacoli affrescati da Benozzo Gozzoli. Oltre che dalla  Galleria degli  Uffizi,  si prevedono capolavori provenienti dai Musei Vaticani, dal Museo di San Marco a Firenze.
