WALTER VALENTINI - A CELEBRATION
Se usciamo a un sentiero ignoto (o del viaggiar con Walter Valentini) - If we come out from an unknown path (or travelling with Walter Valentini).
Dedicated to Walter Valentini (born in Pergola, 1928), the internationally famous painter, engraver and sculptor, this exhibition features a group of his sculptures in a rather unusual way: three important small sculptures in bronze and two beautiful fireclay panels interact with thirteen works created by students from the Licei Artistici of The Marches and the Accademia di Belle Arti, Macerata. These works have the common theme of the journey, in the sense of reflection and awareness of one's own journey through life. Straight lines and curves, solid forms and shadows, forms in relief and incisions, the rough and the smooth, are elements of the 'grammar' of Valentini's artistic language which he brings together with deep understanding to produce a rhythmical and harmonious syntax, perceptible not only through vision but also through touch.
Summer opening times - July and August: Tuesday to Friday: 9 am - 1pm; 4 pm - 8 pm; Saturday and Sunday: 4 pm - 8 pm. Open until 12 midnight on Thursdays for the duration of Sensi d'estate. Closed: Mondays, 15 August.
Guided visits and learning workshops are available but must be booked. (see individual events for costs). These are free for non- and partially-sighted visitors as well as for disabled visitors, their helpers and children up to the age of 4.
