The use of stamped and decorative concrete in the theme park sector is long established, since these materials are ideal for creating the artistic features of such structures. Until now the American product had the edge over others in securing work contracts, but in the last five years the Veneto-based company Ideal Work, through the quality of its products, punctual delivery and the versatility of its applications, has managed to assert its presence in this sector too.
Disneyland Paris – located just outside the French capital and one of the most profitable parks in the world – initially entrusted the Italian specialists with occasional maintenance as well as work involving changes to existing areas, but has recently placed a large order for the creation of new areas. The work will commence next year and will be carried out by French installers who are already Ideal Work partners.
Theme parks that have already opted for Ideal Work solutions:
Gardaland - Castelnuovo del Garda (Verona, Italy)
Theme park Pinocchio – Collodi (Pistoia, Italy)
Mirabilandia - (Ravenna, Italy)
Canevaworld – Lazise sul Garda (Verona, Italy)
The outstanding feature of the Museum, dedicated to mountaineering, is the fact it is embedded in the upper part of Monte Plan de Corones (at 2,275 metres above sea level) with a marvellous, evocative panorama of the Dolomites. Concrete is the predominant material throughout the imposing construction, which takes its colours from the local geology; the material was used to create three large volumes with sinuous and irregular geometrical shapes, in glass reinforced concrete fibre.
Ideal Work has begun to restore the coat-of-arms of Cosimo II de’ Medici above the main arch of the Loggia del Grano(GrainMarket)in Florence.
The restoration of the coat-of-arms, which had fallen into a state of disrepair, is being financed by Ideal Work in a project proposed by Fondaco, a company that specialises in cultural sponsorship.Ideal Work decided to offer the surface of the covering sheet of the restoration works to Alessandro Gatto, the best humourist and illustrator in the world. The work portrays an unfamiliar Cosimo II, who observes the city, looking out from under the sheet. Gatto has presented Florence with an original piece of contemporary art, based on an ironic observation of daily life.
