Monteverdi Gallery: 2015 Exhibition
Monteverdi is pleased to present a solo exhibition of Giorgio Bronco entitled “Al di Sopra, Al di Fuori”, which is interpreted in English as “Over, Above and Far Away”.
Developing the relationship between sculpture and space, the exhibition will take place both inside the Monteverdi Gallery and outside of it, utilizing the open spaces of Castiglioncello del Trinoro, the restored medieval village of Monteverdi Tuscany.
Giorgio Bronco Il Saltatore di Emozioni
Andrea Baffoni, Italian art critic and historian, describes the sculpture of Giorgio Bronco as “based on the manipulation of iron, worked figuratively and shaped to enhance the structure without losing the inherent strength of the medium. The sculptor moulds thin human figures, light and elusive, almost on the verge of vanishing, but with clarity both in form and in content.”
“Giorgio Bronco’s work seeks inspiration in the metaphysical world that uplifts the spirit over and beyond its material form.
Iron figures and shapes subtly sway, light and sinuous in the air and up on into the sky, seeking harmony with themselves and with the earthly world. ‘Al di Sopra, Al di Fuori’ catapults the viewer into an indefinable space-time dimension, hovering between the real and the surreal and welcoming the discovery of emotions, dreams and desires, perhaps dormant but never forgotten.”
All exhibitions are open to guests and the public for free.
Exhibition hours are 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
The Giorgio Bronco exhibition will remain on display through November 8.

Per il mese di ottobre Monteverdi è lieta di presentare la mostra personale di Giorgio Bronco “Al di Sopra, Al di Fuori.”
Sviluppando la relazione tra sculture e spazio, la mostra si svolge sia all’interno della Galleria Monteverdi che all’esterno,coinvolgendo gli spazi aperti di Castiglioncello del Trinoro, il borgo medievale di Monteverdi Tuscany recentemente ristrutturato.
La scultura di Giorgio Bronco, nella descrizione di Andrea Baffoni, critico e storico dell’arte “ si basa sulla manipolazione del ferro, lavorato secondo canoni figurativi e modellato in modo da esaltarne la duttilità strutturale. Lo scultore forgia sottili sagome umane, sfuggenti e leggere, quasi sul punto di svanire, evidenziando un principio di leggerezza che emerge tanto nelle forme quanto nei contenuti.”
“Le opere di Giorgio Bronco si ispira ad una dimensione metafisica che eleva lo spirito al di sopra della materia.
Forme e figure sottili che ondeggiano sinuose e leggere nell’aria, verso il cielo, alla ricerca di un’armonia con il sé e con il mondo terreno.”Al di Sopra, Al di Fuori” proietta lo spettatore in una dimensione spazio-temporale indefinibile, in bilico tra reale e surreale, alla scoperta di emozioni, sogni e desideri forse sopiti ma mai dimenticati.”
Tutte le mostre sono aperte agli ospiti e al pubblico. Ingresso libero.
Orari: dalle 10:00 alle 18:00
La mostra di Giorgio Bronco sarà visibile fino al 8 novembre

In 2015, we were delighted to present two residencies at Monteverdi, where the artists created new works and exhibitions in the gallery, while living in the village.
Fay Nicolson (Derby, UK, 1984) is a London-based artist whose work plays with the physicality of images and possibilities for formal and material transformation through repetition.
Notions of process, documents, narrative and abstraction weave throughout her practice, with final works existing as fragments of a wider aesthetic project.
Recent works include a series of large digital prints on silk depicting scaled up watercolors on graph paper – reminiscent of modern textile designs.
Nicholson was in-residence at Monteverdi from June 27 through July 10. She exhibited a body of work exploring textiles, pattern and color, and created a new series of small-scale watercolor paintings, and sculptural, large-scale prints.
Her exhibition ran from July 4 – 12.
Patrizio Di Massimo (Jesi, Italy, 1983) is an Italian artist currently living and working in London. For his residency and exhibition at Monteverdi, Di Massimo showed a new series of ceramics produced in Bassano del Grappa and a series of paintings.

Previous works have seen the artist interpret the body and sexuality and tell stories through a variety of physical objects relating to decor. He has recently confronted the figure – often unseen and hidden in these previous works, and will investigate the idea of ‘the Saint’ in his new works, focusing on face portraits – specifically on their eyes but removing most of the context around them.
This focus is a moment of enlightenment or insight, executed in a figurative manner but with a twist, mostly given by an anatomy distorted by his particular drawing style.

This exhibition will be a continuation of a project in which Di Massimo created a scent entitled, Odor of Sanctity, and exhibited in a Carlo Scarpa-designed studio in Venice. This perfume, alongside the new ceramic works and paintings, will be exhibited in the gallery and open to visitors from July 18 to August 28.
Di Massimo was in residence from July 13 – 26 at Monteverdi Tuscany.
