Art as a journey through the places where we live in

On the occasion of the Biennale Architettura 2023, Frank&Frank presents the GRAND TOUR, an installation of 13 linear meters of great visual impact. Starting from ancient travel stories, the project is projected into the future, evoking relationships between the real, the digital and the material.

The installation will be visible in the Airport on the ground floor, from April to November, then participating to the discussion on “future laboratory”, the theme suggested by the Architecture Biennale.

The creation of these works in organic material is the result of the curiosity and creativity of those who want to investigate the borders and territories in which our geography is oriented, inspired by the ancient maps of explorers.




GRAND TOUR to retrace today, more than two centuries later, the journey made in Italy by cultured and passionate artists such as Goethe and Byron, in search of the vestiges of classical civilization in Italian cities observed with curiosity and amazement, starting from Venice and the islands of the lagoon, Florence Rome, to reach Naples with Procida and Capri.



Frank&Frank create leather city maps  around the world in "vegetable tanned leather" with natural tannins of plants and flowers, colored with volumetric effect thanks to a manual intervention with natural anilines.


These works are crossroads of spaces and colors, crossroads of destinations and cultures, bearers of emotions. An artistic labyrinth where everyday life and art meet.
