Il mito della velocità in cento anni di arte

Il tema della velocità, spesso associato all’idea del viaggio e alla diffusione dei trasporti su rotaia, affiora nell’arte italiana alla fine dell’Ottocento e finirà per caratterizzarla profondamente in alcune sue stagioni, in conseguenza del rapido evolversi delle scoperte e delle applicazioni industriali ai mezzi di locomozione.

la mostra prosegue con un’estensione, che ne riprende i temi principali in una ventina di tele di grande formato. E a conclusione del progetto, ospita l’esposizione Fotografia e velocità, curata da Giovanni Lista, che documenta l’approccio dei Futuristi al dinamismo, all’aerodinamismo e alla velocità come mito della modernità stessa.

a mostra permette di conoscere le meraviglie e le incredibili forme di vita che si trovano negli abissi più profondi. Queste specie sono plasmate dalla pressione dal buio assoluto e dal gelo profondo, hanno forme incredibili, sembrano appartenere ad un mondo alieno e quasi immaginario.

Ma il buio non è mai assoluto, e le profondità abissali si accendono ad intermittenza delle luci chimiche dei suoi abitanti. La mostra si svolge nella semi oscurità, dove luci a led e piccoli faretti illuminano i più di 100 rarissimi esemplari visibili nell’esposizione. I protagonisti sono gli esemplari di dimensioni maggiori, come il calamaro gigante di 13 metri o lo squalo capo piatto di 4 metri.

Author: Donna Scharnagl

It has been over 24 years since I took my first steps in Italy and I still haven’t found a good reason to leave.  Between the food, the culture, the history, the art, the landscapes … did I mention the food? I have become a lifelong student. And I soon learned that Italians all have stories that long to be told; stories that paint a picture of how hard work produces character, how life is made of ups and downs and how good it feels to laugh.
