Spooning

On my recent trip to Florence I spotted the newest installation on the Gallery Art Hotel near the Ponte Vecchio. Last time I noticed it there were people with animal heads climbing up the front of the building.

Now we have spoons…I have no idea why, or why some spoons are red and some are white. The spoons are made from recycled plastic by artist SimoneD’Auria and called “I Eat Earth”.

  1. Thank you for the information and photos Debra. I was quite intrigued by it. I found out that Simone d’Auria is an architect and designer and his project is inspired by the 2015 World Expo theme, “Feed the planet”, which explains the spoons. The large one has a name: Bruno. Here is the information… In Italian http://m.lungarnocollection.com/it/hotel-collection/firenze/gallery-hotel-art/arte-e-design/mostra-in-corso.html
