We write these words with tristezza today: as many of you may have heard Igor Mitoraj, a towering figure in the world of Sculpture, and an artist who brought much to Pietrasanta over the decades he made it the heart of his creative endeavors – has passed away. The “City of Art” mourned the man in a service held monday, in the Duomo. He was 70 years old.

You can read some biographical information on the great master, on the Wikipedia page, linked here.

It’s a truly sad October… Pietrasanta cries the loss of another sculptor, Daniel Milhaud, who also died, last weekend, at the age of 84.

In a web exclusive, we post photographs by Giovanni Ricci-Novara, from Igor Mitoraj’s “Angeli” exhibition currently in Pisa. We stand corrected – earlier versions of this post stated there would be a catalog for the exhibition, this seems not to be the case. The exhibition will continue until January 15th, 2015.

The fate of a major retrospective exhibition, of Mitoraj’s work, to be held in Pietrasanta next Summer – which was in the planning stages – is unclear.

“That Mighty Sculptor, Time” ____________ Giovanni Ricci-Novara’s photography exhibition in Lucca lingers in the places where Time seems not to be waited for, places where even the wind, extenuated, stops its journey.

(Thank you Giovanni!)
