The Andy Warhol exhibition is worthy of prestigious and well – known ex position spaces, which will make the town of Sarzana like other italian cities, about the proposal of art exhibitions. This is the right definition for this art show.
Andy Warhol is the famous “father” of Pop Art and his exhibition will be held at Fortezza Firmafede, from 24th November 2017 to 5th March 2018, and that will bring thousands of tourists in the town.
Sarzana chooses to make a tribute to one of the most important and influential 20th – century artist, after thirty years of his death.
The artistic heritage of Andy Warhol and Sarzana’s exposition is a great success, curated by Eugenio Falcioni, scholar, expert and one of the leading collector of American artist; and, by Matteo Bellenghi, who will offer some exclusive work of arts, and one of the most important Polaroid collections.
The mayor, Alessio Cavarra, said: “The Andy Warhol exhibition and his 200 work of arts enables to Sarzana, of joining at the group of cities, that are able to contain big art exhibitions. This was a goal, that we have proudly achieved”.
There is never been in Italy, a small town like Sarzana, that was able to contain a similar ex position: just cities like Milan, Genova, Florence.
The coucilor responsible of culture said: “ Some months ago, we have contained an exhibition of Leonardo da Vinci machines, and it has been a great success. So, we have decided to continue on this way as we have done with Helene De Beauvior exhibition. Today, we are really happy to offer the ex position of a known artista s Andy Warhol”.
The exhibition will have more aims and interpretations: from one side, the exposition’s idea and enjoyment, divided in more sections, that will allow to under stand the “modus operandi” of Andy Warhol, in anthological way (from the early 1950s, including the very rare accessories designs, until the last production before the death in 1987); in the other side, the possibilità of an educational – scientific interpretation, that will be instructive and, also, funny for the students, through the organization of some workshop, and the exhibition of the accurate depiction.
Among the most fascinating curiosities of the exhibition, there will be the parallelism between Andy Warhol and the famous Amiga 1000 Commodore Computer: by installing a floppy disk, i twill be possible to project into the original Amiga 1000 of the original designs, by Andy Warhol in person, during the promotional meetings, promoted by the same Commodore.
