Just two days away, the second act of the exhibition moves from the center of Milan to the green shores of Iseo Lake, where Romero Britto will be the protagonist of a special project created for the historic brand Bellini Nautica, a leader in the restoration of vintage Riva motorboats and a point of reference for enthusiasts from all over the world. In a marriage of art and Made in Italy design, an iconic Riva Aquarama will be presented, wisely re-elaborated using the artist's colorful expressive language.

On Saturday, June 11 and Sunday, June 12, it will be possible to admire at Bellini Nautica's spaces (Via Carlo Lanza 28, Clusane d'Iseo, BS) the Riva hand-signed by Britto and the artist's artworks, including a work dedicated to the project, available exclusively from Deodato Arte.

The Pop and Colorful Universe of Romero Britto

Born on October 6, 1963 in Recife, Brazil, Romero Britto moved to Miami where he began his artistic career. After a trip to Paris he admired and was inspired by the artworks of Picasso and Matisse. He developed a personal and unmistakable style that blends the decomposed shapes of Cubism with bright colors and a sunny, Pop aesthetic.

Today he is among the world's best-known artists. In addition to exhibitiions in museums and galleries around the world, he has made several public art installations such as the sculpture for London's Hyde Park, the largest in the park's history.

In addition, he has collaborated with countless brands such as Dolce&Gabbana, Vodka Absolute, and Disney, and has portrayed movie, music and sports stars, and heads of state (including Queen Elizabeth).
