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.

The Beauty of the Paintings from Siena
This exhibit strives to pull together the vast beauty of a century’s worth of art and combine it with the timelessness of its landscape. You are invited to set into towns like that of Sarteano, Montepulciano, Pienza, Asciano, Trequanda and San Quirico d’Orcia on a virtual treasure hunt. Starting from the beginning of the 16th to the middle of the 17th century, when art in and around Siena was experimenting with “maniera moderna” and the light of Caravaggio, this exhibit is filled with excellent and singular artistic personalities who are completely discovered by the general public.
Check out the website, and insert a stop or two on your itinerary while visiting Val d’Orcia and the Valdichiana area. Not only does this exhibit offer a tour through a century’s worth of artistic styles but also a landscape that shouldn’t be missed. The towns of Montepulciano, San Quirico d’Orcia and Pienza are each going to host a section of the exhibition dedicated to an important artist from the area and to his environment, inspired by a masterpiece already present in the towns.
