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.

    When we move, what happens in the place we left? Does it remain empty? Does it fill up? With what?

    The Greek philosopher Aristotle (384–322 BC) responds that bodies move from one place to another like fish in water and that nature does not allow for emptiness. Hence another question arises. If nature is full, what forms can the primordial elements, or ‘atoms’ if we prefer, take to match one another and fill the void?

    Since the time of Euclid (who lived between the fourth and third centuries BC), researchers of geometry and algebra have looked for possible answers. Alongside them, generations of artists have measured themselves against the same theme, taking it from the three dimensions of space to the two dimensions of the flat surface and designing tiles that, by translation, cover it in full. A classic example is the tiling of the Alhambra, in Granada.

    Filling the Void presents instead a review of the most recent works dedicated to the tessellation of flat surfaces: those carried out by M.C. Escher in the 1930–70s and those from a series of contemporary artists inspired by the same tradition.

    The exhibition is a part of the show “The Poetry of Primes – From Pitagora to algorithms”, curated by Piergiorgio Odifreddi.
