Gogotte

From a geological point of view a gogotte is a sandstone concretion firmly bonded with siliceous cement. Grains of sand have been cemented in place with silica deposited by water circulating within the sand layer. Chemically speaking, a gogotte consists almost entirely of silica and therefore, has approximately the same composition as a quartz crystal. Gogottes are, without any doubt, among the most extraordinary art pieces created by nature: An inspiration source for artists (Roger Caillois, Jean Arp etc.) they figure prominently in major private collections and museums. One of them, which is displayed in the Royal Ontario Museum is certainly one of the pieces that visitors photograph the most. The specimen acquired by the Smithsonian Institute has been placed right to the famous blue diamond “Hope”, illustrating through two of its most distant components the perfection that mineral kingdom can reach.

Theatrum Mundi

It is the iconic and evocative place where all this comes to life, it is the practical example of the Cabinet of Curiosities: the achievements and wonders of human knowledge. A unique combination of archaeology, design, entertainment, classical, primitive and modern art. Some of the exhibits include fossils or relics of dinosaurs that lived millions of years ago, cosmonaut suits used on their voyages of discovery into the universe, meteorite finds, and film props from Hollywood stars. Where is it located? In Arezzo (Italy), but now thanks to 365ART also online.
