The show

Curated by Emanuela Manca and Luigi Fassi

In harmony with the entire curatorial project and the themes addressed with "Personnages" and "Allori senza fronde" , the MAN offers about twenty works belonging to the permanent collection of the museum, including drawings, sculptures and paintings.

Among the artists on display, Antonio Ballero, Giuseppe Biasi, Salvatore Fancello, Francesco Ciusa, Francesca Devoto, Bernardino Palazzi and Giacinto Satta, key figures for the development of new expressive canons in the Sardinian art scene.

The exhibition corpus is an extraordinary opportunity to see not only finished works but also sketches and anatomical studies, which reveal at the same time the attention to the classics - reworking their thinking in the light of one's own culture - and the investigation into physiognomy that engages science. of the late nineteenth century deeply influencing the cultural history of Sardinia.

In the works it is the representation of the human figure in its symbolic dimension that prevails, between details of faces and volumes of bodies, always in close relationship with the world of Sardinia in the twentieth century and the insular Mediterranean culture.
