On display installation interventions, paintings, sculptures, video installations. “Water – highlights the artistic director Luigi Fiorletta in the introductory text to the catalog – is today among the primary needs of the planet, the essence of our life, the central point on which the question of the future revolves. Looking carefully at how much the expressions of contemporary art dedicate to it, takes on a particular meaning: observing at a close distance the ability that art has, with its creative energy to push the gaze towards an awareness of reality, of we need to build a world where sharing and participation are essential elements. ”

“To guide the choice of artists – Massimo Bignardi specifies – was the desire to focus attention on different generations and languages. That is, to enter the pages of current events, considering in it the experiences that have been a ‘pioneer’ for the new generations. Paying homage to Paolo Rosa and Studio Azzurro highlights this choice of field: observing, reading, studying the forms of creativity means, first of all, considering the processes of art as an expression of perpetual motion that looks at the dignity of man. Water, therefore, as an element of regeneration, of life that becomes the material of that inexpressible dialogue that art weaves with the life of our planet “.

The exhibition will remain open until January 9, 2022. In compliance with anti-covid regulations, access to the venue requires a green pass, the correct use of the mask and interpersonal distancing.
