Exhibition and World Master of Sand Sculptures

15 June, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 10 October, 2019 @ 5:00 pm


Spiers, castles, towers that “stand out” in the clouds, figures that seem to want to come to life at any moment. This is not the last Walt Disney movie but the Sand Sculpture Championship for Nations that takes place every year on the free beach of Cervia
Those who have always been accustomed to thinking that works of art are born only between brushes, colors and clay will have to change their minds because even in the sand art is at home, as long as the grains are mixed with a good dose of water and imagination.
Cervia is an event that sees countries go “arm in arm” and rediscovers the taste for simplicity. Moreover, as Oscar Wilde said, “simple pleasures are the last refuge of complex souls”.

And so, on the shores of the Adriatic, the artists, granule on grain, will “build” an event that will be unforgettable. A part of the sculptures is made at the beginning of summer, but from 8 to 10 August there are other sculptures that participate in the World Master of Sand Sculptures.

The teams will have 3 days available to work and make the sculptures. They will have to respect the international canons according to which the sand must be mixed only with water and cannot have inside it no rigid support.

The tools used are halfway between the mason’s tools and those generally found at the home of sculptors. The works reach up to 4 meters in height and are born from the fervent imagination and skillful hands of the artists who come from all over the world.

Only when the work is completed is it possible to spray a solution of water and glue onto the sculpture that creates an impermeable film that keeps the sand moist and compact.

After the award ceremony, the masterpieces will remain on display until mid-October.
