It’s World Cup season… and Pietrasanta indulges the fevered frenzy of team vs. team… “Il Volo della Fenice” (the Flight of the Phoenix) exhibition sees Italy take on Germany. Or rather it showcases the works of 11 contemporary painters from the two countries – the press materials note, rather blandly “the deep and often conflictual socio-political and cultural relations” of the two countries.

The exhibition features the work of Friedrich Dickgiesser, Arnim Toelke, Leander Kresse, Reinhold Braun, Alexander Knych, Junior Toscanelli, Giuseppe Donnaloia, Andrea Carpita, Marco Salvetti, Dany Vescovi, William M. Zanghi, and Fulvio di Piazza. It promises to examine the complex movements articulated by artists and critics in the last decades of the last century, by tracing a map of the painterly experiences of a generation of German and Italian artists.

The show is curated by the CAV, Pietrasanta’s Centro di Arti Visive.
