Milan celebrates Arnado Pomodoro’s 90 years with a great retrospective simultaneously set up in different spaces and an itinerary embracing the whole city.
At the heart of the initiative is the exhibition, promoted by the City of Milan, ideated and produced by the Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro and Palazzo Reale with the collaboration of Mondo Mostre Skira; this will be hosted in the Palazzo Reale's Sala delle Cariatidi
, where will be bringed together about thirty sculptures created between 1955 and today.
In the Piazzetta Reale
will be exhibited, for the first time in its entirety, the sculptural complex of The Pietrarubbia Group
, an environmental work started in 1975 and finished in 2015.
Four "Visionary" projects will be presented through maquettes, drawings and photos at the Triennale di Milano
and in the Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro
in Milan's via Vigevano venue: the Pietrarubbia monument, the project for the Urbino's cemetery, the wine cellars in Bevagna and the Simposio Minoa in Marsala.
Arnaldo Pomodoro’s passion for theatre will be documented at the Museo Poldi Pezzoli's Sala del Collezionista
through sixteen theatre maquettes executed between 1982 and 2009.
The exhibition is completed by an artistic itinerary
that connects Pomodoro's works in public and private venues in various part of the city.
