The show

Omar Galliani pays tribute to Leonardo Da Vinci in the noble rooms of the Castle of Bari. On the five hundredth anniversary of the death of one of the most representative figures of the Renaissance, the great tradition of Italian design lives on in the works of Omar Galliani, an internationally acclaimed artist for his ability to bring the classic "nuanced" technique to a monumental dimension.

The exhibition, which will unfold in the Sala Federico II, in the Norman Room and in the Sala Bona Sforza, will include about twenty-five works, including large tables and works on paper. In a long corridor of the manor will be set up the most imposing table ever made in graphite point, "Great Italian Design", presented in 2005 at the Turin State Archive together with an original drawing by Leonardo Da Vinci. Eight unpublished works will also reconstruct the identikit of Bona Sforza, which will develop around a single subject, plumbed in different postures of the face and neck. Finally, a reconnaissance will be proposed through some of the Maestro's youthful works, created starting from details of faces or drawings taken from famous Leonardesque notebooks.

The exhibition, entitled "Leonardesca", is promoted by the Director of the Apulian museum center and by the Vincenzo Maria Valente Music Foundation in partnership with Exprivia / Italtel, Via Della Spiga Milan, Indeco spa, with the support of the Brera Academy of Fine Arts , Puglia Foundation, Giuseppe Saverio Poli, Banca Popolare di Puglia and Basilicata, University of Bari, Port System Authority of the Southern Adriatic Sea.
