(ENG 🇬🇧) In 2016, for the Treccani Institute of the Italian Encyclopedia in Rome, Eron painted a piece dedicated to migrants on the remains of a boat wreck. The piece was titled “Soul of the Sea” and depicted faces of women and children that seemed to emerge from the rust of the boat itself. Pictures of this piece went viral and both The Economist and The Chicago Tribune published it as the best picture of the day in the world.

(ENG 🇬🇧) “Lampedusa European Champion” is the work that Italian artist Eron dedicated to Pietro Bartolo, the Lampedusa doctor who rescued thousands of desperate migrants who search for a safe place where to live and often die while crossing the Mediterranean Sea. In 2016, the artist reproduced the Trophy of the Italian football league replacing its engraving with the inscription “Lampedusa European Champion” and its emblem with a lifebuoy. Eron’s genius transformed the Trophy into a sort of amphora rusted by the sea; what is more, we can see the rust streaming down the pedestal and creating the portrait of the doctor. On 22 February 2019, during a public meeting between the doctor and the citizens of Santarcangelo di Romagna – RN (Italy), Eron decided to give the artwork to Pietro Bartolo as a token of gratitude for his hard work.

“Lampedusa European Champion”, l’opera dell’artista italiano Eron dedicata a Pietro Bartolo, il medico lampedusano impegnato nel soccorso di migliaia di migranti disperati alla ricerca di un posto tranquillo in cui vivere e che spesso muoiono durante l’attraversata nel mar mediterraneo. Nel 2016, l’artista ha riprodotto la coppa del campionato di calcio, modificato le incisioni con la scritta “Lampedusa european champion” e sostituito lo stemma con un salvagente. L’intervento pittorico di Eron, ha trasformato la coppa in una sorta di anfora arrugginita dal mare, la cui ruggine, colando sulla superficie del basamento che la sorregge, crea il ritratto del medico. Il 22 febbraio 2019, in occasione di un incontro pubblico tra il medico e i cittadini di Santarcangelo di Romagna (RN), Eron ha deciso di donare l’opera a Pietro Bartolo in segno di riconoscenza per il suo operato.
