previous - next

Biella _ Museum of the Territory of Biella _ January 15th / February 27th 150th Anniversay of the Unification of Italy _ Group Exhibition “Cavour e Mazzini: due protagonisti del Risorgimento rivisti da artisti contemporanei” (curator: F. Santaniello / artists: O. Ronda, D. Basso, P. Lagna, U. Mariani, S. Mirano, G. Costantini, L. Mainolfi, V. Crivelli, C. Carotti e S. Coppi.). "We are that for which we struggle, that for which we are willing to die! The portraits of Mazzini and Cavour fade away in the onrush of the ideas and values they defended throughout their lives and that history now celebrates as the Unification of Italy. Thus, the strength of the thoughts of Mazzini (a Radical Republican) and the strategies put into effect by Cavour (a Liberal Democrat) become geometric shapes carved into the mirror. Two windows on soul that remind that life belongs to those who believe in the strength of their dreams!"
