The evolution of the form
The abstract art of Marzio Cialdi arrives at Villa Bertelli, where thanks to a large anthological exhibition, "The evolution of the form", organized by the Villa Bertelli Foundation and scheduled in the internal exhibition spaces from 21 April to June 2, over forty of his sculptures will be presented, which tell the story of his artistic career. The sculptor, born in Pistoia, but for years living in Switzerland, has been researching for about fifteen years, which has led him, not only, to deal with different materials, but also to develop his own style and his own poetic. So, in addition to the use of traditional bronze and ceramics, it has recently moved on corten, aluminum and steel, materials that, while remaining solid and durable, develop a material expressiveness linked to rust and time that flows. The folded strips of these elements make up a large part of his last production and also represent the will for total control of the creation process. Great protagonist of the works of Cialdi has been and remains the man. For this reason the artist has elaborated characters, which can recall, on the one hand, the famous "Walking Man" by Alberto Giacometti and on the other, the metaphysical figures of Roberto Barni. Specifically, the bronze sculptures have been enriched with a particular search for innovative and original white and pink patinas compared to traditional fusion. Marzio Cialdi, therefore, wants to be an all-round sculptor, without limitations, convinced assertor of sculpture, understood as a product of the binomial hand-thought. His art tends towards change, instability, conscious of a world that does not stand still and that always awaits the artistic interpretation to reveal itself.The exhibition will remain on display from April 21st to June 2nd at the following times: every day from 10.00 am to 1.00 pm and from 4.00 pm to 7.00 pmFor information: 0584 280292 -280253

The evolution of the form
The abstract art of Marzio Cialdi arrives at Villa Bertelli, where thanks to a large anthological exhibition, "The evolution of the form", organized by the Villa Bertelli Foundation and scheduled in the internal exhibition spaces from 21 April to June 2, over forty of his sculptures will be presented, which tell the story of his artistic career. The sculptor, born in Pistoia, but for years living in Switzerland, has been researching for about fifteen years, which has led him, not only, to deal with different materials, but also to develop his own style and his own poetic. So, in addition to the use of traditional bronze and ceramics, it has recently moved on corten, aluminum and steel, materials that, while remaining solid and durable, develop a material expressiveness linked to rust and time that flows. The folded strips of these elements make up a large part of his last production and also represent the will for total control of the creation process. Great protagonist of the works of Cialdi has been and remains the man. For this reason the artist has elaborated characters, which can recall, on the one hand, the famous "Walking Man" by Alberto Giacometti and on the other, the metaphysical figures of Roberto Barni. Specifically, the bronze sculptures have been enriched with a particular search for innovative and original white and pink patinas compared to traditional fusion. Marzio Cialdi, therefore, wants to be an all-round sculptor, without limitations, convinced assertor of sculpture, understood as a product of the binomial hand-thought. His art tends towards change, instability, conscious of a world that does not stand still and that always awaits the artistic interpretation to reveal itself.The exhibition will remain on display from April 21st to June 2nd at the following times: every day from 10.00 am to 1.00 pm and from 4.00 pm to 7.00 pmFor information: 0584 280292 -280253

The evolution of the form
The abstract art of Marzio Cialdi arrives at Villa Bertelli, where thanks to a large anthological exhibition, "The evolution of the form", organized by the Villa Bertelli Foundation and scheduled in the internal exhibition spaces from 21 April to June 2, over forty of his sculptures will be presented, which tell the story of his artistic career. The sculptor, born in Pistoia, but for years living in Switzerland, has been researching for about fifteen years, which has led him, not only, to deal with different materials, but also to develop his own style and his own poetic. So, in addition to the use of traditional bronze and ceramics, it has recently moved on corten, aluminum and steel, materials that, while remaining solid and durable, develop a material expressiveness linked to rust and time that flows. The folded strips of these elements make up a large part of his last production and also represent the will for total control of the creation process. Great protagonist of the works of Cialdi has been and remains the man. For this reason the artist has elaborated characters, which can recall, on the one hand, the famous "Walking Man" by Alberto Giacometti and on the other, the metaphysical figures of Roberto Barni. Specifically, the bronze sculptures have been enriched with a particular search for innovative and original white and pink patinas compared to traditional fusion. Marzio Cialdi, therefore, wants to be an all-round sculptor, without limitations, convinced assertor of sculpture, understood as a product of the binomial hand-thought. His art tends towards change, instability, conscious of a world that does not stand still and that always awaits the artistic interpretation to reveal itself.The exhibition will remain on display from April 21st to June 2nd at the following times: every day from 10.00 am to 1.00 pm and from 4.00 pm to 7.00 pmFor information: 0584 280292 -280253

The evolution of the form
The abstract art of Marzio Cialdi arrives at Villa Bertelli, where thanks to a large anthological exhibition, "The evolution of the form", organized by the Villa Bertelli Foundation and scheduled in the internal exhibition spaces from 21 April to June 2, over forty of his sculptures will be presented, which tell the story of his artistic career. The sculptor, born in Pistoia, but for years living in Switzerland, has been researching for about fifteen years, which has led him, not only, to deal with different materials, but also to develop his own style and his own poetic. So, in addition to the use of traditional bronze and ceramics, it has recently moved on corten, aluminum and steel, materials that, while remaining solid and durable, develop a material expressiveness linked to rust and time that flows. The folded strips of these elements make up a large part of his last production and also represent the will for total control of the creation process. Great protagonist of the works of Cialdi has been and remains the man. For this reason the artist has elaborated characters, which can recall, on the one hand, the famous "Walking Man" by Alberto Giacometti and on the other, the metaphysical figures of Roberto Barni. Specifically, the bronze sculptures have been enriched with a particular search for innovative and original white and pink patinas compared to traditional fusion. Marzio Cialdi, therefore, wants to be an all-round sculptor, without limitations, convinced assertor of sculpture, understood as a product of the binomial hand-thought. His art tends towards change, instability, conscious of a world that does not stand still and that always awaits the artistic interpretation to reveal itself.The exhibition will remain on display from April 21st to June 2nd at the following times: every day from 10.00 am to 1.00 pm and from 4.00 pm to 7.00 pmFor information: 0584 280292 -280253

Specifically, the bronze sculptures have been enriched with a particular search for innovative and original white and pink patinas compared to traditional fusion. Marzio Cialdi, therefore, wants to be an all-round sculptor, without limitations, convinced assertor of sculpture, understood as a product of the binomial hand-thought. His art tends towards change, instability, conscious of a world that does not stand still and that always awaits the artistic interpretation to reveal itself.The exhibition will remain on display from April 21st to June 2nd at the following times: every day from 10.00 am to 1.00 pm and from 4.00 pm to 7.00 pmFor information: 0584 280292 -280253

The evolution of the form
The abstract art of Marzio Cialdi arrives at Villa Bertelli, where thanks to a large anthological exhibition, "The evolution of the form", organized by the Villa Bertelli Foundation and scheduled in the internal exhibition spaces from 21 April to June 2, over forty of his sculptures will be presented, which tell the story of his artistic career. The sculptor, born in Pistoia, but for years living in Switzerland, has been researching for about fifteen years, which has led him, not only, to deal with different materials, but also to develop his own style and his own poetic. So, in addition to the use of traditional bronze and ceramics, it has recently moved on corten, aluminum and steel, materials that, while remaining solid and durable, develop a material expressiveness linked to rust and time that flows. The folded strips of these elements make up a large part of his last production and also represent the will for total control of the creation process. Great protagonist of the works of Cialdi has been and remains the man. For this reason the artist has elaborated characters, which can recall, on the one hand, the famous "Walking Man" by Alberto Giacometti and on the other, the metaphysical figures of Roberto Barni. Specifically, the bronze sculptures have been enriched with a particular search for innovative and original white and pink patinas compared to traditional fusion. Marzio Cialdi, therefore, wants to be an all-round sculptor, without limitations, convinced assertor of sculpture, understood as a product of the binomial hand-thought. His art tends towards change, instability, conscious of a world that does not stand still and that always awaits the artistic interpretation to reveal itself.The exhibition will remain on display from April 21st to June 2nd at the following times: every day from 10.00 am to 1.00 pm and from 4.00 pm to 7.00 pmFor information: 0584 280292 -280253
