Wednesday June 24, on the occasion of the feast of San Giovanni, the Patron Saint of Florence, the Galleria d’arte La Fonderia opens its doors, in the space of Fonderia Street 42R, with the collective exhibition entitled “Firenze, dagli anni ’50 ai nostri giorni”.
It is the second exhibition that the Galleria d’arte La Fonderia organizes in a new and innovative way to involve its public, in full compliance with all safety rules. This time the opening will take place on the 24th of June, an important date that re-launches Florentinity as a creative identity. The exhibition investigates the artistic production that characterized the 1950s to the present days with a selection of punchy artists who “made history in Florence”.
From the masters who represented the artistic movements of the 1950s such as Vinicio Berti, Gualtiero Nativi, Mario Nuti and Alvaro Monnini, to Visual Poetry, represented here by Lucia Marcucci and Giuseppe Chiari, the only Italian artist belonging to the international movement “Fluxus”, to Primo Conti, Antonio Bueno, Riccardo Guarneri, Silvio Loffredo, Sergio Scatizzi, Roberto Barni, Luca Alinari, Giuseppe Ciccia up to the emerging Leopoldo Innocenti, Claudio Cionini, Cecilia Chiavistelli and Riccardo Macinai and a reference to the Tuscan figurative tradition with Nino Tirinnanzi.
“With this exhibition, – explains the young gallery owner Niccolò Mannini born in 1991 – we wanted to retrace an important historical moment for art in Florence, a moment in which was going on the artistic-cultural dialogue, in which our city was struggling to recover the place she deserved among the great Italian cities ardent with initiatives and artistic movements, by attaching to this the Florentine contemporary and therefore involving young artists who already see their work known, proposing a comparison. “
The exhibition aims to be a meeting point between the post-war Florentine avant-garde and a section dedicated to the proposals of emerging artists who work permanently in Florence (Chiavistelli, Innocenti, Macinai) or, as in the case of Cionini, they are divided between the capital Tuscan and the hometown. An exhibition dedicated to Florence and its recent history.
Aware that we are going through a hard and particular moment of recovery Galleria d’arte La Fonderia doesn’t want to stop and invites everyone to contact us to book an appointment. We want the gallery to be, as from its birth, a place of innovation and a breeding ground of ideas that starts again “to make art” thanks also to the involvement of its visitors.
