On Saturday 17 December 2022 at 18 , in the spaces of the Civic Museum of the Cappuccine di Bagnacavallo, the collective exhibition The landscape opens to the public. Beaten paths and new perspectives , curated by Davide Caroli.
The exhibition, promoted by the Municipality of Bagnacavallo and organized by the Museo Civico delle Cappuccine , is part of the three-year program dedicated to the landscape, a theme on which the cultural offer of the city of Bagnacavallo will focus until 2024.
The exhibition, scheduled from 17 December 2022 to 5 March 2023, intends to focus on the two declinations foreseen for 2022 - Natural landscape - and 2023 - Urban landscape - , and present a contemporary reading of the representation of the landscape theme, with particular attention to the examples most interesting emerging nationally.
Ecology, ecologism, sustainable development, climate change, environmental protection have led this theme to be highlighted and trendy in the political, social and generational discussion due to the urgency with which, for example, they are revealing themselves the climate changes that will also have repercussions on our societies have started on an inclined plane.
The discussion on what the landscape is today, on its precarious conditions, due not only to climate change, to its consideration at an urban, social and even human level, to the attempts put in place to trace documentation and direct its evolution on more respectful, they are parallel plans and topics on which studies, research and insights are being developed which in recent years are reaching conclusions that are as refined as they are fascinating.
It therefore does not seem trivial to address the discourse on the landscape also from the cultural and artistic side and to bring contributions to the discussion starting from the vision of those who, through a less strictly scientific observation point, can offer a prospective tool to analyze this theme with different eyes.
The exhibition, a non-chronological but thematic and stylistic itinerary to suggest references and affinities, imagined as a real walk, opens with a first section in which the road is indicated by some twentieth-century masters who traced the lines along which the art of the 20th century developed, Carlo Carrà , William Congdon , Giorgio Morandi , Ennio Morlotti , Mario Schifano, Mario Sironi.
