The Forte di Belvedere together with other important museums in Florence such as the Uffizi Gallery, the Opera di Santa Croce and the Marino Marini Museum are holding the great contemporary art exhibit “Ytalia. Energy Thought Beauty”: over one hundred artworks of some of the major artists of our times will be on display until October 2017.
The exhibition project – promoted by the Comune di Firenze in cooperation with Mus.e – strengthens the image of Florence as a city of contemporary art by creating a bridge between its historical and artistic heritage and the present-day society with its contemporary signs and forms. Patrizia Asproni, president of the Marino Marini Museum defined the contemporary art exhibit YTALIA “a dialogue between ancient and contemporary that aims to create a fresh connection among the city’s institutions, in a simple complexity that allows us to recognize occurrences and evolutions that otherwise would have escaped us.”
An artistic “invasion” of the Renaissance city that will give the public the chance to appreciate the artworks of 12 contemporary artists renowned in the Italian art scene such as Giovanni Anselmo, Marco Bagnoli, Domenico Bianchi, Alighiero Boetti, Gino De Dominicis, Luciano Fabro, Jannis Kounellis, Mario Merz, Nunzio, Mimmo Paladino, Giulio Paolini and Remo Salvadori. The exhibition has been organized by Sergio Risaliti and curated by Marco Bazzini e Sergio Risaliti.
YTALIA will be held primarily at Forte di Belvedere, the fortified villa on a hill overlooking the city built at the end of the sixteen century, but several artworks are on display in other 8 sites throughout the historic city centre of Florence, including the Palazzo Vecchio and the Boboli Gardens. Some works will be site-specific installations while others, will be held in historic palaces, museums and gardens.
