The news of the death of Arturo Di Modica hit Nicola Fiasconaro straight to the heart, as he was linked to the artist by a relationship of deep friendship and esteem. “With the death of the Master Arturo Di Modica, great Man, Artist and Provocateur, we lose one of our excellences. I had the honor of sharing with him emotions, affection and great dreams, such as that of recreating the work that made him famous in the world, the famous Bull, using the Modica chocolate. A project that has seen us committed years long and that I will carry out to turn it into a reality”, has commented the Master Pastry Chef.
The work will be a tribute to Di Modica’s “Charging Bull”, appreciated all over the world as a powerful symbol of reboot dedicated to the City of New York, which by the time was struck by a heavy financial recession.
The idea will give life to an ambitious and scenographic creation, which will see the light as soon as the general health situation will allow it to be set up in total safety.
