It’s out the beautiful Catalogue about the new Permanent Collection of Contemporary Art, located in the enchanting undergrounds of Palazzo Gasparini (a XVII Century palace), officially opened in Mercatello sul Metauro, a fascinating medieval and Renaissance town in Marche region (Pesaro Urbino, Italy).
The catalogue features also Roberto Alborghetti work titled “There ‘s some chaos, with a focal point” (canvas, 63 x 43 ), a realistic and not manipulated image “captured” in Milan during a cloudy day on December 2010 for his “Lacer/actions” project concerning images of torn and decomposed publicity posters and urban tokens.
The official Catalogue has been published with the contribution and sponsorship of Banca dell’Adriatico. The book presents all the 158 works displayed in the Permanent Collection rooms and biographies dedicated to all the artists.
Bonita Clerici and Silvia Cupini – Art Historians at Urbino University – curated the critical texts about the artworks. The new Permanent Collection of Contemporary Art – Prof. Cuppini writes in the presentation of the Catalogue – is an important initiative that aims to extend Mercatello’s role as a place of art and contemporary feeling. The initiative was made possible thanks to enthusiasm, passion and tenacity of artist and sculptor Pasquale Martini, who curated the Collection.
