The company Moca s.r.l., the owner of the brand Euromobili – storia e design dal 1959, announces a call for the selection of an artist to create a mural artwork on the exterior walls of the showroom Euromobili – storia e design dal 1959, located in Mosciano Sant’Angelo, Teramo (Italy), SS 80km 94 + 700. The company Moca s.r.l. will cooperate with the cultural association Defloyd on the coordination of the project. For several years the cultural association Defloyd has organised urban art performances as part of the project Arte Pubblica (www.facebook.com/artepubblicap).
THE COMPANY The company was founded in Mosciano Sant’Angelo (Teramo) in 1959 under the name of Mobilificio Monaco (Monaco Furniture), while the store EuroMobili has been open since 1972 in Mosciano Stazione. The company is closely linked to the territory and in particular to the small town of Mosciano Sant’Angelo, known as the “Town of the Furniture”, due to its large number of artisans and skilled carpenters. Later the company name was changed to Mobilificio Fratelli Monaco SAS. On that occasion, the “three M- logo” was created: a mark that represents the family, their hometown and their business sector: M as Monaco, Mosciano and Mobilificio (furniture store). The Monacos created a logo which was not only related to their family, to their city and their territory, but it was also an expression of their business activity, which today is headed by Mariano Monaco. He wanted the original M to be in every company logo, as in Moma centro cucine, Maras shop calligaris and Mybigsofa … divani di qualità, to refer both to the past history and to the name of the present owner. EuroMobili showroom is a landmark for high-design furniture in the Abruzzo Region. Over half a century of tradition can be found in one place, where elegance and taste merge to select the most prestigious and valued brands. The company boasts a solid experience and is forward-looking. The showroom is a laboratory of ideas, where a team of professionals gather together.
PURPOSE The purpose of the project is to create a mural artwork. The artist will have to start from the company’s history, from its know-how (www.marianomonacogroup.it) to decorate the building. The work should remind the activity of the furniture store but it does not necessarily have to be tied to a specific design item. The passer-by should be able to relate the artwork to both the company and to the town of Mosciano Sant’Angelo, historically known for its furniture crafts. An exhibition of the sketches, which will be sent by the applicants, will be staged in the showroom spaces. The exhibition will be held in conjunction with the presentation of the mural artwork and it will be open for a week.
TECHNICAL FEATURES The work will be created on a portion of a concrete wall (10m X 9m). At his discretion, the artist may also use the upper part of the entrance façade, which is adjacent to the main wall. The artist will be allowed to use sprays, acrylic or quartz paints. Other mixed techniques are allowed, provided they are thoroughly described in the technical project attached to the application form. The Client shall bear all the expenses for equipment, materials and logistics. All other logistic issues related to the realization of the artwork will be defined later.
