“In Contemporanea” a 30-year retrospective of the work of nine local artists on view in Pietrasanta, the City of Art.

Incontemporanea ARTE
Nine voices. Nine journeys. Nine thrilling windows on the tumultuous and ground-breaking late-20th-century modern Italian art movement in the centuries-old art-rich Versilia area. The Church and ‘complex’ of Sant’Agostino in Pietrasanta hosts “InContemporanea” an exhibition of the work of nine local artists – nine very individual voices. Loud, bold, introspective, social, quietly revolutionary – it’s an altogether remarkable exhibition; it is curated by Antonella Serafini editor of censurati.it, a progressive blog of note, and It features paintings, sculptures, and mixed-media works from 30 years of artistic exploration by nine local artists – nine visionaries that mined the themes of art and language – artists that challenged and transcended both national conventions and international assumptions during a time of great political change.

The artists are: Vittore Baroni, Dario Barsottelli, Carlo Battisti, Antonino Bove, Gian Luca Cupisti, Emanuele Giannelli, Marco Maffei, Maximo Pellegrinetti e Claudio Tomei. The show… the experience is one of awe and wonder – personal re-invention and social re-engineering. Aaaah, those were the good ol’ days. … wait!? …  THESE are the good ol’ days!

The show goes from the 22nd of October to the 11th of December. Hours: from 4pm – 7pm Closed Monday. It is free to the public. Pietrasanta delivers (the art) goods, again! Check it out!
