FIUME TWENTY YEARS AFTER HIS DEPARTURE

Curated by Marzio Dall’Acqua, Renzo Margonari, Vittorio Sgarbi

Organized by Augusto Agosta Tota

MANTOVA, CASA DEL MANTEGNA

Via Acerbi, 47

20 October 2017 – 18 February 2018

The set-up of the exhibition—with more than 110 works among paintings, drawings and sculptures—has followed a chronological as well as thematic criterion as representative as possible of the Fiume large and varied production. We started from a group of “historical” drawings of the 1940s that attracted the enthusiasm of Raffaele Carrieri and Alberto Savinio, together with drawings of the 1960s on subjects such as the Fighting Bulls, the Centaurs, the Anthropotaurus, and the Nymph and Faun.

Since his earliest childhood, Carlo Baruffaldi, born in Correggioverde, province of Mantua, has shown a profound need to express himself through images. Over the years, he has been able to hone this innate talent, also thanks to the periods of his life spent in the academies.

Museo Della Follia - da GOYA a BACON

curated by Vittorio Sgarbi

SALÒ (BS) 11 MARCH - 19 NOVEMBER 2017

With the work of the Spanish painter Francisco Goya (1746–1828), the idea of madness became an art theme. Existential behaviour, the opposition to the world, to what was considered to be normal, almost explicitly became a call to be acknowledged. Until then, the solitary and meditative space of melancholia was considered to be the personality trait of so many artists. 

Tutto Ligabue

With these two volumes that make up the Catalogue Raisonné of the Paintings of Antonio Ligabue I have finally completed a project spanning thirty years concerning an artist who has been the goal of my professional life. Marzio Dall’Acqua, who has always been the most assiduous, rigorous scholar specialized in this painter, is the curator of the critical and biographical apparatus.

Pietro Ghizzardi

In 2013 the Centro Studi presented the first Catalogue Raisonné of the works ofanother painter Pietro Ghizzardi (1906-1986). Ghizzardi was a multifarious artist, but apparently far-removed from the painter hailing from Gualtieri. For a long time Antonio Ligabue, Bruno Rovesti and Pietro Ghizzardi were considered to be the triad of the great Po Valley Naïve artists.
