The scafa

Rarely have art and craftsmanship been so closely intertwined as in the artwork 'La Scafa'. The work is mainly inspired by the painting by the landscape artist Jacob Philipp Hackert. In fact, in the front part, through the figurative honeycomb technique, the fulcrum of the painting is represented, the Scafa, this raft that was used to cross the Sele river.

The masterpiece

Around the typical fauna of the Sele plain. On the back a winking sun hovers above a cornucopia of animals, while Aurora brings a new day with her chariot.

The Scafa was presented on display in the Royal Palace of Caserta for the 200th anniversary of Hackert's death.
