Italianality, New Australian Pavilion Installation
A brand that covers the café, the bar, the winery and other initiatives Ronnie is involved in.
from the July 2014 issue
In celebration of Italian Masterpieces, renowned Melbourne restaurateur and patron of the arts, Ronnie Di Stasio, has installed a larger than life representation of an artwork being featured at this exhibition in one of his iconic venues, Bar Di Stasio.
Ronnie has chosen to display a print of an artwork titled Martyrdom of Saint Lawrence by Spanish artist Jusepe de Ribera, who had spent time living and working in Italy. Owned by NGV, the original oil on canvas was completed between 1620 and 1624, and measures over 2 metres wide.
This Pavilion contains many pavilions. It remembers the history of pavilions as an avenue for the new and grand. It celebrates humble structures that can house the beginnings of incredible ideas. It appreciates its role as a facilitator of all things creative, provocative and bravura.
