Sgarbi opens the exhibition Kossuth

On 30th May 2015 the most famous art critic of Italian art will open the doors for Kossuth Exhibition

Art returns to give pride to the beautiful historical buildings of Città della Pieve.

Saturday, May 30, 2015 at 18 Vittorio Sgarbi will open the retrospective exhibition "Kossuth 1981-2009", in the new space Kossuth, the remittances of the Bishop's Palace, overlooking the central Via Vannucci of the town that was the birthplace of Perugino. The five newly restored rooms a few steps from the oratory which houses the Adoration of the Magi by Pietro Vannucci, host until October 31 sculptures by artists of international renown.

Vittorio Sgarbi has conceptualized "perfection has no color"
"The whole Greek sculpture, Romanesque, Renaissance aimed at color, polychrome. The time in many cases eliminated the color, as in ancient sculptures. Kossuth part already colorless, achromatic. This presupposes a mental synthesis and not given as a result of a deterioration, of a consumptive, but as perfection without color ".
Forty works, including paintings and sculptures, can be visited until October 31, 2015

In the museum circuit of Città della Pieve, the solid figurative sensibility of Kossuth is enhanced by the atmosphere that pervades the city and places of exposure.

Soul of the new cultural center of Città della Pieve, the works of Kossuth inaugurate a program of annual exhibitions that will have as its theme the subject of the artist, very close to the town where he also decided to be buried. Myths, portraits and religious works, design and investment casting, will be some of the topics chosen in collaboration with teachers and students of a school in Città della Pieve that, year by year, will be investigated and processed with research by studying Kossuth's works and other contemporary artists, which will be implemented with new exhibits.
