Resist Sister

Nico Vascellari

2020, chocolate, pistachio, 3cm Resist Sister brooch to wear.

Resist sister, a hymn to resistance, is an iconic image created by Nico Vascellari who, since 2017, uses anagrams to give insight into connected concepts.

Maradeiboschi, Codalunga and Case Chiuse, who have always operated with collaboration as a prerequisite for their activities, have joined forces for this artistic-culinary project by combining content, creativity and flavor. A new chocolate praline has been created, through the search for the perfect shape and ingredients, with a careful one by one handmade process.

The message screen printed on the pin and on the box is reinforced and conveyed by the ingredients: chocolate and pistachio.
Chocolate activates our brain metabolism and facilitates concentration, thus helping us to relieve mental fatigue as well as physical fatigue.
Pistachio is the most tenacious of all seeds, it grows in arid areas, on rocky soils where the hard work and determination of the farmer always prevails. For century it has been a symbol of resistance to adverse conditions.

CODALUNGA started in 2005 in Vittorio Veneto, Italy, when the artist Nico Vascellari decided to open a part of his studio to the public. Over 100 events have been organized with the participation of artists from all over the world. Always independent and acting in a small provincial town, Codalunga has forced its context to a strong comparison with contemporary culture. Nico Vascellari, in 2017 create Dream Merda. Initially conceived as a neon work, this anagram quickly became an iconic image that spread globally as a screen print on t-shirt, produced by Codalunga. Dream Merda is soon followed by Resist Sister, a hymn to resistance and resilience.

Case Chiuse by Paola Clerico started in February 2014, as a wandering platform of production and consultancy in the field of contemporary arts, with the purpose of supporting artists and facilitating the diffusion of the work. Based on the collaboration among different identities and realities, this ‘’wandering’’, both physical and mental, proves to be the source of great freedom and inspiration.
