“Sirotti e i maestri” is the exhibition, produced by the Municipality of Genoa, which is part of a project linked to the memory of the great artist Raimondo Sirotti, dead in 2017.
Given its success, the exhibition, which initially should have ended on the 13th of September, has been extended until the 20th of September
The Municipality of Genoa restarts its cultural activity, with an important date in a museum of great historical relevance like Villa Croce. As a matter of fact, no other artist could be more appropriate than Sirotti to reopen with enthusiasm the doors of Genoa’s culture, with his world full of colors, vitality and energy.
The strength of Sirotti’s works lights up Genoese summer and finds in Villa Croce its perfect frame. The venue is transformed in a completely different place, in order to propose to each visitor a new experience.
The exhibition set up, based on immersive and multisensory experiences, which interprets the emotional pathos of Sirotti’s work and his abstract language, takes on great importance.
The set up of the exhibition has been conducted in collaboration with Francesca Serrati, curator of the museum, and with the cooperation of the “Studio Sirotti architettura e design”, that belongs to Sirotti’s son Riccardo.
The exhibition investigates the connections between Sirotti’s art works and the ones of both other ligurian Art Masters of the twentieth century and other great protagonists of the Baroque artistic movement in Genoa, the genre to which Sirotti was inspired by.
The exhibitions scheduled at Palazzo Ducale (“Raimondo Sirotti – una lettura retrospettiva), as well as the ones at Museo Diocesano and at the Museo dell’Accademia Linguistica di Belle Arti are postponed to 2021.
