IL DISEGNO DELLO SCULTORE

Il disegno dello scultore aims to analyze and bring into play the foundations and models of the artistic experience and more generally of modern and contemporary visual cultures through signs, drawings, sketches and sketches that from the beginning of the 20th century reach the contemporary age. . Research, analysis and study of the images are all the bases of this exhibition project that in its first phase will involve sculptors of different generations and culture, but in its subsequent developments will alternate monographic focus to further sampling and especially to new incursions in the fields of painting and architecture, science and literature.
