" Sogno o son desto?" curated by Claudio Spadoni - Magazzini del Sale Cervia - Ravenna - Italy

friday 22 july 2022 - 09:19


curated by Claudio Spadoni






Inaugurated in the evocative setting of the Magazzini del Sale in Cervia, the exhibition that Cna Ravenna gives as always to the city of Cervia in the summer: "Sogno o son desto?", Curated by prof. Claudio Spadoni. An exhibition of high artistic level with works by over forty artists from different generations, covering over a century of art history.
The exhibition, which will remain open until 21 August, is organized in three sections: the first, that of nocturnes, examines the nocturnal landscape not only in a physical sense, but also in a figurative sense; the second, which gives the exhibition its title, "Sogno o son desto?", speaks of daydreams, of strange, hallucinating visions; the last section, "The dream of the ancient, the contemporary imagination", unites artists who reinterpret the past through very different languages, and some others taken from the imagination of our time.




"Defrazioni" Franco Tosi Curated by Beatrice Buscaroli - Exhibition Catalogue - Di Paolo Arte Gallery - Bologna - Italy - 2021/2022

By Franco Tosi






This neologism comes from the term used in computer science for the decomposition and recomposition of the hard disk of the hardware, called "Defrag". The derivation "Defrazioni" is in effect a word that does not exist in the Italian language but that goes well with my idea of art, at this specific moment and these new works. Defragmentation of the surface of the picture and its and recomposition by exploiting the materiality and ductility of the mediums. Sometimes you tear other holes, in a dialogue with the surface itself, where the impetuousness of the first phase is appeased by the methodality of the second. This is in search of the perfect sequence, where there is nothing perfect, after all.

"Le astrazioni pittoriche di franco Tosi in mostra" by Gianni Milani - il Torinese - November 18 2021

thursday 18 november 2021 - 08:15

By Gianni Milani


"My paintings were painted using the scale of existence and not the institutional one": so said the great Marck Rotcko, an American painter of Latvian origin (who committed suicide in 1970) and acknowledged father of "Color Field Painting" - painting as " colored field ". Abstract spaces of vibrant color in which there is no trace of human figures, but only total "ecstasy". Tragedy and ecstasy. Art as life. Colors as essential wings for journeys towards absolute emotions. Words and dimensions in which I think Franco Tosi, Bolognese by adoption (but born in Magenta in '62), to whom Marco Sassone's "metroquadro" Gallery dedicates today at the same time, four years after his last solo show in Turin, can be well recognized. two exhibitions with extremely clear and significant titles: one "Insight" hosted in the Galleria in Corso San Maurizio and the other "Inside" in the spaces of the "NH Hotel Santo Stefano" in Via Porta Palatina.Read more...

By Olga Gambari


Vanchiglia old village close to the center, continues to grow in the name of a vertical concrete and creativity, so far away from gentrification.
An intersection of streets where they follow each other on the street and in the courtyards of artists, laboratories, artisans and locals along with historic shops.
In this microcosm, where once lived in Carlo Mollino and Carol Rama, seven galleries have taken their home over time, creating an ideal walk through the neighborhood...Read more.

" Deve sempre ritornare il mattino? Mai non finirà la violenza di ciò che è terrestre? Un nefasto affaccendarsi divora il volo celeste della notte ( ..) E eterna è la durata del sonno. (...) Solo i folli ti disconoscono e ignorano un sonno diverso dall'ombra (...) Non ti sentono nell'aureo fiotto del grappolo, nell'olio prodigioso del mandorlo e nel bruno succo del papavero".
