Maurits has been founded by Federico Giudiceandrea in 2010. The company owns one of the world’s largest collections of works by Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher and works by contemporary artists which are thematically related to Escher’s œuvre. The collection currently encompasses around 600 pieces that have already been exhibited in cities as Rome, Milano, Singapore, Madrid, Lisbon and New York. Together with the Dutch MC Escher Foundation and the Roman exhibition house Arthemisia, Maurits succeeds to recorded art exhibitions with visitor records. For each exhibition a catalog with the exhibited works as well as essays by Federico Giudiceandrea and his co-curators in the respective national languages is published and made available for sale.

With the idea to streamline, automate and optimise manufacturing processes by means of image processing, Federico Giudiceandrea has founded MiCROTEC Srl in Brixen/Bressanone. Today the company has become market leader in opto-electronic measurements for the wood processing industry.

Federico Giudiceandrea shares his passion for technology and innovation as Business Angel within the framework of Microtec and Maurits Srl. He supports young, motivated talents which are founding startups with both a financial aid and his know how as well as extensive experience.

  • Escher is the best known, but not the only artist who has measured himself against the periodic isometries of the plane, to put it in scientific terms. Before him, Koloman Moser, an exponent of Viennese Art Nouveau, did it and after him, a group of contemporary artists such as Andrew Crompton, David Hop, Hans Kuiper, Francine Campagne, Alain Nicolas, Robert Fathauer and Sam Brade.

    The exhibition Filling the void – MC Escher and beyond at the StadtGalerie (Galleria Civica) in Bressanone offers a review of the graphic works of these artists: a total of 26 works, mostly prints. Each of them is accompanied by a graphic card that highlights and illustrates the characteristics. Among the works on display are eight tessellations by MC Escher and some aperiodic tessellations by Richard Hassell.
