A special cake for TechnoAlpin
TechnoAlpin treated itself to a very special cake for its 25th birthday. A wooden cake with a diameter of 22 meters has graced the roundabout in front of the headquarters in Bolzano since November. Designed by artist Hubert Kostner, the yellow TechnoAlpin cake is decorated with 25 snow lances. The artwork marks our 25th anniversary and is also symbolic of the cake which we all share in the tourist region of South Tyrol, with everyone getting a slice of the action. Crazy ideas which seemed like wishful thinking 30 years ago have long since come to pass. The winter tourist season is simply not viable without snow-making technology. This reality is reflected on the cake. The imaginary ski channels decorating the cake in a diamond pattern transport the mountain landscape to new surroundings.
The work of art will be on show until the beginning of 2016. In future we would like to use the roundabout for contemporary art exhibits on a long-term basis.
