Serie Imperiale is the name given to a series of postage stamps released in 1929 and used until 1949, depicting the head of King Victor Emmanuel III. Artist Flavio Favelli chose two of these to overprint with another stamp, thus altering the features of the sovereign. His work consists in enlarging these images and painting them on the walls of obsolete buildings: painting, tearing, filling. In doing so, Favelli overcomes the fixity of the work, which finds new space and time while preserving its hidden history and technique.

 

Flavio Favelli was born in Florence in 1967 and lives and works in the town of Savigno (Bologna). He emerged on the contemporary art scene thanks to object collages, site-specific installations and public works of art, some of them permanent. He has shown his works in collective and personal exhibitions in Italy and abroad, including at Palazzo Grassi (Venice, 2008), La Maison Rouge (Paris, 2007), Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo (Turin, 2007), Museo Pecci (Prato, 2005), the Italian Cultural Institute (Los Angeles, 2004) and at the 50th Venice Biennial (Venice, 2003). His works are featured in a number of public and private collections.
