Association of Educational Orientation Center - COE and Galleria Melesi are pleased to present the exhibition Windows on the Mediterranean at the Torre Viscontea di Lecco in collaboration with the Municipality of Lecco and SiMUL - Sistema Museale Lecchese. Canvases and sculptures by Pino Deodato which will be inaugurated on Friday 2 July 2021 at 6 pm and which will remain open until 1 August.
The exhibition from the collateral event of the Agora of the Mediterranean 2021 - the weekend dedicated by the COE Association to the great themes and often epochal phenomena that cross the coasts of the Middle Sea - will become, due to COVID-19, the only of the fourth edition of the international study days that will take place in Barzio once the pandemic is over. Windows on the Mediterranean. Canvases and sculptures by Pino Deodato is an exhibition that is made up of four groups of works. The first reproduces scenes of everyday life: “Ricami domestica” and “Ricamata” narrate an intimate, domestic, familiar dimension. A man and a woman, elevated to the emblem of a universal humanity, observe the dramas of our contemporaneity from behind a curtain. The second group of works tells the present. At the center is the theme of death: bodies, hands, faces that disappear in that mare nostrum which has been a source of life, cultural exchange and wealth for centuries. The third group of works, on the other hand, is directed towards the future and focuses on the theme of birth: in "Nativity" and "Christmas 3019" we imagine a hypothetical world, the result of the current climate crisis, inhabited exclusively by animals which, like of the Magi, celebrate the birth of a new man, a symbol of a new humanism. Finally, the fourth group tells stories of men, women and children fleeing scenarios of war and destruction, hunger, famine and environmental emergencies and in need of protection and hospitality.
