FPT Industrial, leader in the industrial engine sector, promotes the second edition of the FPT for Sustainable Art Award, a meeting point of sustainability, innovation and art. In 2020, Renato Leotta, presented by the Madragoa gallery, won the award with a work from the “Mare” series, which was then purchased by the company. The work embodies ideas shared by FPT Industrial, which designs and produces motors for the industrial sector (vehicles, machinery, generators) and for the nautical world.
In this project, the company consolidates its constant focus on environmental sustainability and the protection of the seas. This has led to the desire to direct the second edition of the award towards selection of an artist whose work is not only the result of research on sustainable processes for the production of art, but also has an intrinsic symbolic value that more or less directly addresses the complexity, fragility, force and beauty of the marine ecosystem. A creation based on a process that involves people, materials, lives, and has to come to terms with organization, logistical and economic mechanisms. Sustainability as a motor of transformation of materials in creative and industrial processes.
