The show

With the exhibition "Ettore Fico. Opere di grande formato" the MEF, a new year since its opening, dedicates a permanent space to sales on the first floor to the master. The project is to create a space dedicated to the artist with works exhibited in rotation. We recall that the museum came to life thanks to the great foresight and determination of the artist's wife, Ines Sacco Fico, who disappeared last year, who with the creation, fifteen years or so, of the homonymous foundation and then, in 2014, of the museum, wanted to leave the city an indelible mark of the artist's work.

A hundred works will be exhibited, including oils and tempera, executed from the first Thirties to 2004, the year of his death.
The most significant production of Ettore Fico is therefore collected in this exhibition that runs throughout his career. The exhibition is a tribute to the artist and to his lively artistic and existential journey: the fifties and sixties in Italy, nature, Liguria and the French Riviera, the countryside of Castiglione Torinese, a much-loved refuge and protagonist in many of his works.

An art that has its roots in a dimension linked to the extraordinary experiences of international painting and an interpretation of objects and landscapes permeated by a sense of poetry. In many works it is a charm and a mystery of his garden in Castiglione, a place of reference but also a refuge and a magical place of silence, a point of reference and story of the succession of the seasons with its lights and colors. Present in important exhibitions since the First World War onwards, he has participated in numerous exhibition events such as the Turin Quadrennial and the 7th National Art Quadrennial in Rome in 1955. The exhibition presents the most unusual and researched aspects of the artistic path of Ettore Fico , from abstract experiences to more geometric ones, from the impressions delineated by the subtle touches of pure color to the material and informal brushstrokes.
