Everyone’s favorite Coward from the film “Operation “y” and other Shurik’s adventures” was born April 23, 100 years ago. In honor of the date this year in the capital will be a monument to actor, taken care of his only daughter Natalia.
“A few years ago, the press reported on the installation of the monument to Georgy Mikhailovich Vicino on the Arbat. The initiator was the district Council. During this time, repeatedly appeared in various proposals to address this issue. But unfortunately, none of them, until I realized. I suspect that the main reason is the lack of funding. All this time I was inspired by the hope to witness
the installation of the monument to his father, working on ideas and sketches of possible monument. And I have accumulated a number of projects are in quite advanced stage. Being a professional, I am very anxious, and demanding, respectively, relate to the artistic embodiment of his portrait, the Pope himself finely versed in sculpture and was my teacher. And I think I managed to capture its main features…
Seriously engage in the manufacture and installation of the monument will need the engagement of a professional sculptor and architect, respectively, great importance is the selection of a production workshop. Regarding the latter, we have good candidates for the job. Great interest in the installation of the monument showed the Council of deputies of the municipal district of the city and personally Evgeniy Petrovich Babenko. He already had several meetings, discussed possible sites for the monument on Arbat, the issues of finding sponsors. And organizational functions of the district willing to take what they already reported in the press, and for that we are very grateful.
I wanted to inaugurate the monument in 2017, the year marking the 100th anniversary since the birth of my dad. But, as I said, doing only the creative part of this project.”
Also Natalia has the idea to organize a big exhibition dedicated to Georgi Mikhailovich.
