The show

The Municipality of Pesaro, in collaboration with the Olivieri Institute - Library abnd Oliverian Museums, presents the exhibition "Agostino Iacurci. Tracing Vitruvius. Dreamlike journey through the pages of De Architectura", curated by Marcello Smarrelli, with the scientific advice of Brunella Paolini.

The exhibition is part of the cycle "Exhibitions for Leonardo and for Raphael" in Pesaro, Fano and Urbino; project widespread and fielded in concert by the three municipalities as part of the celebrations promoted by the MIBAC for the 500 years since the death of Leonardo da Vinci in 2019 and of Raffaello Sanzio in 2020, carried out with the support of the respective national committees, the contribution of the Marche Region and the organization of the Museum System.

The choice to treat the figure of Marco Vitruvio Pollione (80 BC - 15 BC approx.) - famous Roman architect and writer active in the second half of the 1st century. B.C. considered the most famous theoretician of architecture of all time - born in continuity with Fano who celebrates Leonardo Da Vinci through the sheets of the Codex Atlanticus in which Vitruvius is often mentioned, to which the city traditionally gave birth.

"Tracing Vitruvius. A dreamlike journey through the pages of De Architectura" is a complex site-specific project conceived, for the Civic Museums of Pesaro, by Agostino Iacurci (1986) - an artist known throughout the world especially for his monumental wall paintings made in public space - composed of three-dimensional and pictorial works with a highly scenographic character, able to create a suggestive and engaging dimension that accompanies the presentation of ten different editions of De Architectura, coming from the Oliveriana Library.
