The icon of Carrara Marble Weeks, 2013 – the sideways David, on display in the city center – got tattooed over the weekend. The performance was the brainchild of Luciano Massari, noted Carrara-based sculptor. The 1:1 scale resin-cast copy of Michelangelo’s masterpiece, a special project of the Studi d’Arte Cave Michelangelo Studios, was completely covered in tattoos by the local creative collective, EXP.
