Museo Gypsotheca Antonio Canova in Possagno

From 20 April to 29 September, the Museo Gypsotheca Antonio Canova in Possagno will host the exhibition resulting from the photographic research project "Canova Quattro Tempi" by Luigi Spina

The story, began in 2019 and has led to four publications published by 5 Continents Editions, accompanied by texts by Vittorio Sgarbi. The third volume recently won the gold medal as best art book awarded by ICMA - International Editorial-Design & Research Forum. On the occasion of this exhibition, the fourth and final volume of the publishing project is released. Each of Spina's four stories leads the eye through the density of the plaster, brings out every possible detail and posture of the sculptures, the lead nails on the plaster, the repère points, become a code for reading the works. "My purpose," says Spina, "is to reclaim the contemporaneity of the classic, its being transversal in every era".
