“Donate your bras to further art” Italian artist calls for 10,000 bra donations for his installation “Madre Patria” (Motherland)


Giuseppe Di Vietri has launched an appeal for donations of women’s bras – ideally red, white and green – for his planned installation, in a deconsecrated church in Salerno, Italy.

The title of the piece “Madre Patria” (Motherland) was originally produced, in a … smaller size (with only 150 bras) for the 150th anniversary of Italy’s unification. The new installation – if they reach their goal – is part of Voci dal Sud art festival in Salerno.

200 bras have been received so far, but the artist remains optimistic that he’ll get the … support needs to complete his piece for the opening, slated for the 8th of August.
