...the studio practices today using the experience, the competence, the knowledge and the cultural relationship matured by Mario Zanetti. Sig. Zanetti has over twenty years of experience. He is also a trustee of the historic archive of the teacher Antonio Stagnoli, his uncle, painter of acclaimed notoriety.
For such purpose Mario Zanetti, together with the collaboration of important signatures of the criticism of the cultural world for the publication of monographs, books, catalogs, audiovisual documents, has managed in these two decades a consistent primary role in taking care of the general cataloguing of the artist, promoting his work, his image and communication through exhibitions at cultural centers and highly prestigious museums.
Result and synthesis of this authoritative cultural stimulus course has been the foundation of “Fund Antonio Stagnoli for the Sand Valley ” at the Onlus Comunity Foundation from Brescia. A new reality – undertaken as non-profit making and with only art and culture interests – sponsored by people and institutes of the banking and entrepreneurial world, and destined to promote cultural initiatives inspired to Stagnoli’s artistic message. It is hoped by this activity to perpetuate his memory, the public and social value of his art and together, to expand the patrimony of the famous cultural tradition of the territory of Bagolino, ancient town of Val di Sabbia, characterized by marvelous human, environmental and architectural points of interest as well as by a historical carnival of international fame.
