PURPOSES OF THE HOUSE

PROMOTE AND HOST ART AT TERRITORIAL, NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL LEVEL

"Casa Tambúca" wants to emphasize Art in all its forms; for this reason the presence of an exhibition space where to organize exhibitions and events for young artists and already established figures in the artistic sector was indispensable in the choice of the venue.

In fact we would like to support the emerging artists of the territory, facilitating their artistic path and supporting them in their growth, providing them with the opportunity to "debut" in an environment saturated with positive energies.

 

INVOLVE STUDENTS AND ART LOVERS WITHOUT TARGET LIMITS
How? Proposing mini-courses and thematic workshops, planned periodically, with different artistic and artisan personalities, also in relation to the exhibitions of the artists we will host, as a technical and theoretical study. The invitation to offer courses and laboratories is in fact also extended to other structures, which can collaborate with the "home", and vice versa.
Why? Our long-term goal is to succeed in structuring the "home" as an academy, creating specialization macro sections. Examples:
HYPERREALISTIC section (with life drawing courses, oil painting, etc.);
ILLUSTRATION section (with graphics courses, comics, creative drawing, etc.);
DECORATION section (with courses of Trompe l'oeil, fresco, basic whitewashing, etc.)

 

CREATE AN ARTISTIC COMMUNITY WITH URBAN MOVEMENTS
Street Art & Urban renewal? Yes We can!
We want to create a movement in which young artists can be free to propose projects aimed at revaluing the territory and the city in which they live, so as to feel an integral part of the community and have a new civic respect for the environment that surrounds them.
Such as? Proposing notices of competition (also open to schools), such as "Fishermen of doors", for the decoration of gates of fishermen's kiosks in Viareggio.
Thanks to a partnership with the Municipality of Viareggio to create a collaboration and work together that we hope will give excellent results, we have various projects in the pipeline, such as the creation of large thematic posters to be displayed on degraded buildings and construction site barriers scattered throughout the city.

Alessandra and Elisa met in January 2018 on the occasion of Elisa's exhibition at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Lucca. From the first meeting a great harmony was immediately born between the two artists, very different from each other and practically complementary in character and style, but with a common ideal: that of living and transmitting the Art.

In this way, in Alessandra's atelier, working side by side, Tambúca was born, "daughter" of the encounter between two different artistic worlds and translated into a Cultural Association that in the first year alone already sees several projects and important collaborations.

Thanks to the crowdfunding campaign that ended positively in 2018 and the support of the Banca Del Monte Foundation in Lucca, today Tambúca is no longer just an ideal, but has found its home in the heart of the city that Alessandra and Elisa have chosen to make a dream take off .
