A quick reminder – and an update: Igor Mitoraj, one of the more famous artists working in Pietrasanta sculpture passed away in October, yet his legacy continues to march on. His “Angeli” exhibition, featuring sculpture and paintings, wraps up the 15th of January… and no matter what you feel about the master’s work, it’s a show worth seeing for its sheer impact, thematic coherence, and for the evocative power of the exhibition’s installation. And plans are indeed underway for a major retrospective of the artist’s work, which will be held in the City of Art’s Church of Sant’Agostino Complex and its “salotto nobile” … Pietrasanta’s main square, next summer!
