The exhibition features paintings of eleven contemporary artists, reproductions of Leonardo’s machines and interactive cross-media productions devoted exclusively to the “Ultima cena”.
The project plan, setting up alongside ambitiously “disorganization” of signs of contemporary aesthetics to the reinterpretation of the classic: “disorganization” is a reference point and at the same competitive spirit which the pictorial language can not escape.
The selection of works and interactive exhibits are amplification and re-evaluation of the image, often stereotyped and sometimes trivialized, that Leonardo’s work has assumed over time.
The artists who are offer an “emotional journey” are: Franco Anselmi, Benigna Marino, Luca Bonfanti, Cannao, Renato Natale Chiesa, Domenico Cage, Milo, Enzo Rizzo, Philip Scimeca, Togo, Tiziana Vanetti. Each artist presents, with its own language, a contemporary reinterpretation of Leonardo da Vinci.
The exhibition is complemented with the presence of 13 reproductions of Leonardo’s machines, made by the Commendatore Giorgio Mascheroni, and a series of video installations and cross-media.
