CARLO ZAULI MUSEUM A PROTAGONIST OF ARTEFIERA WEEKEND
In the institutional exhibition Courtesy Emilia Romagna, curated by historian and art critic Eva Brioschi and representing the very fulcrum of design at Arte Fiera, Carlo Zauli Museum’s presence can be seen across four different works: Primario Lavico by Carlo Zauli, a powerful work from 1985 that feeds off the typical Zaulian dialectic between geometric structure and naturalistic explosion; and the sculptural trilogy The Surface’s Flowing by English artist Daniel Silver, created in 2012 during an artist-in-residence under the curation of Marco Tagliafierro.
At MAMbo, the main project of Art City 2020, one can also find the installation Ossi by Claudia Losi, a monumental piece created in Montelupo Fiorentino by the Tuscany Art Manufactory and produced by the Montelupo Museum of Ceramics Foundation in conjunction with the municipality of Scandicci.
