THE FREE ZONE
TURIN, 3-7 NOVEMBER 2021
The Free Zone is a project aimed at the creation of critical sense; a heterogeneous system of information which is useful to provide elements on analysis and knowledge for the creation of collectors, critics, historian and curators and more generally individuals that can interpret their own contemporaneity.
A very rare bust of Dionysus by Bartolomeo Cavaceppi will be at the center of the exhibition. Carved on the ways of the Roman bust of the Dionysus made during the late Hadrian period, and now at the Capitoline Museums in Rome, the bust, in white marble, is one of the very few works signed by the artist, known to the public especially for his bust of Emperor Caracalla, which is kept at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles.
The Florentine Cinquecento is represented by a magnificent panel by Pier Francesco di Jacopo Foschi together with a portrait of a Young Man by Santi di Tito.
A typical example of modern research into the Renaissance principles of harmony, order and geometry integrated into a highly personal environment is the selection dedicated to the ceramics of the 1950s by Fausto Melotti, among which a Luna Vase stands out. Together are presented two glazed terracotta baskets with flowers and fruits by the workshop of Giovanni della Robbia.
Finally, we have a tribute to Turin with Paolo Icaro's conceptual work, Percorsi corporali, 1974, where the Turin artist conceives the space around him, the "place", as a mental dimension and as the atmospheric availability of his presence.
