SPOLETO, PALAZZO COLLICOLA VISUAL ARTS – CARANDENTE MUSEUM

Cattura

On the occasion of the Festival of the Two Worlds, the director Marco Tonelli inaugurates the new layout of the contemporary art collection of “Palazzo Collicola Visual Arts – Carandente Museum”, including the new acquisitions and donations. Starting point of the collection will be the strong presence of modern art in the city of Spoleto.  Thematic rooms have been dedicated to this topic, starting from the exhibition of 1962 “Sculptures in the City”, going through the various editions of the “Premio Spoleto” (1953-1968), with works by Pascali, Ceroli, Uncini, Moreni, Turcato, Morlotti, Vacchi, together with the Group of 6. Among the acquisitions, there is a work by Somaini, granted on deposit by the artist’s heirs: Proposal for a monument (II series), 1961, bronze in a silver bath. This is the scale model of the great iron sculpture exhibited in Spoleto in 1962, today in the Mumok collection (Museum Moderner Kunst Foundation Ludwig) in Vienna.
