Although both casting and forging are ancient metalworking techniques, there was a period during the 1950s and ‘60s when it became quite fashionable to combine them in a single piece. This was the first example of a cast and forged sculpture to enter MAG’s collection. It was given in memory of Giovanni Polizzi, a young sculptor and member of the Arena Group who was killed in an auto accident at the age of 34.
