“Truly”, the exhibition in Pietrasanta by Fabio Viale

Emanuele D'Angelo

Truly” is Fabio Viale‘s exhibition that comes to life in the streets of Pietrasanta, a small town in Tuscany, and enters into dialogue with the town’s symbolic places.

The exhibition took place in the streets of the center of Pietrasanta, between the Duomo and the fourteenth-century church of Sant’Agostino, and as always the Italian artist exhibited sculptures divided in half between the sacred and the profane.

As we have said in previous articles, Fabio Viale does not paint anything on marble. The Italian artist prefers to use an ink that infiltrates the marble and exploiting its porosity manages to make the color penetrate all the way through.

What strikes in “Truly” are definitely the “Three Graces“, placed inside the church of Sant’Agostino.
The sculptures represent three women from Ghardaïa, a city in Algeria. Here the women wear the traditional haik, a wide, white and long garment wrapped around the head and body. A sort of provocation about denied freedom, a theme that the artist holds dear.

Space also for the sculpture created in collaboration with Marcelo Burlon, the Gaddi Torso decorated with the typical motifs of the South American designer.

Below you can admire the beauty of all the sculptures in the exhibition by Fabio Viale.
