The show

The open-air exhibition offers a walk among Davide Rivalta's animalier sculptures within the green areas of the Falcone d'Italia. The Bolognese sculptor plays on the casual encounter between humans and animals, evoking a distant and wild landscape, in contrast with everyday life. The memory of the Zoological Garden, active close to the fortified area between 1912 and 1988, will also be recalled. The exhibition constitutes a unique opportunity to admire previously unseen sculptures, created specifically for the Brescia Castle.

The exhibition aims to be a bridge between the beginning of Rivalta's career and his current international success . The gorillas, the first series of animals created by the sculptor, become a symbol of his debut. Remodeled after twenty years, the Castle's new gorillas – together with orangutans, chimpanzees and baboons – will close the circle of its artistic evolution . The Castle, in this way, will become the fortress of the great anthropomorphic apes. Each family will occupy a specific area of the park and will accompany the viewer on an exploration journey of the Castle.

The exhibition extends to the rooms of the Tosio Martinengo Art Gallery where the journey ends with a bronze barn owl, which ideally acts as a counterpoint to the sculptures located in the Castle park.
