Exhibition "Teatri e Giardini" - Works by Mirco Denicolò

From 13 November to 11 December 2021, the G. Gianetti Ceramics Museum in Saronno is pleased to host the Teatri e Giardini exhibition by the Faenza artist Mirco Denicolò (1962).

The exhibition was born from the meeting of the artist at the Carlo Zauli museum in Faenza with Mara De Fanti, director of the Gianetti museum, and from the subsequent visit of Mirco in the rooms of the Saronnese collection. After many questions and reflections, and walks in the museum's "narrative gardens", the artist has chosen to bring part of an exhibition recently inaugurated at the Il Vicolo Gallery in Cesena and a new production dedicated to the museum's works.

The event is therefore divided into two sections, connected by a poetic thread which is the sensitivity of the artist. A small garden of memory, set up in the museum's exhibition spaces, tells the story of the artist's family, the genealogy, the moments that remain fixed in time, and asks questions about the existence of life and what remains. The garden then continues on the upper floors of the museum, where, alongside the eighteenth-century works, Denicolò's ceramics take on the role of the Commedia dell’arte and come alive with dances and theatrical poses. Next to each image, admirably rendered by the engraved and clear sign of the artist, a flower alights in the continuum of memory, as if to retrace, each time, our roots that sink into the past and blossom in the present.

Hours: Tuesday and Thursday from 3.00 to 6.00 pm, Saturday from 3.00 to 7.00 pm. Morning by appointment.        

The event is sponsored by the Comune of Saronno.

Special events during the exhibition: Friday 19/11 at 6.00 pm and 7.00 pm themed guided tour, Saturday 20/11 workshop for children The Theaters of Things, Sunday 21/11 meeting Flavors and colors of the garden with tasting of infusions by the Speziando shop (Saronno) by Laura Banfi. Friday 10 December at 6.00 pm talk with the artist. Meetings and workshops with schools in the morning by appointment.
