ICO PARISI. THE HOUSE. LUCIO FONTANA, FAUSTO MELOTTI, FRANCESCO SOMAINI

DSC05295-min

The Galleria d’Arte Maggiore in Bologna hosts an original exhibition dedicated to the house and collection of the Como architect Ico Parisi, presenting some works by Lucio Fontana, Fausto Melotti and Francesco Somaini. Among these, a sculpture by Somaini (Piccolo racconto sul mare II, 1961, piombo con lucidi parziali, 16,5×50,5×13,5 cm) and four drawings by Fontana for the Competition for the Monument to the Resistance in Cuneo (1962), in which the master represents the sculpture created by Somaini for the occasion. Parisi, Fontana and Somaini present themselves as “Spazio R” at the first and second degree of competition with the literary advice of Giorgio Bassani. The idea of the exhibition comes from the publication “Ico Parisi. La casa”, published by Electa in 1999, edited by Flaminio Gualdoni and produced by Franco and Roberta Calarota.

The exhibition is open from 11 December 2020 to 15 January 2021 and can be visited online at the link https://www.maggioregam.com/it/viewing-room/
