The temporary exhibition on the Italian painter Ugo Celada da Virgilio (1895-1995) has been extended until October 15th.
An ambitious exhibition, that intends to situate the artist within the cultural context of his time, placing him in unprecedented dialogue with both his contemporaries and old masters. A shy and reticent figure, Celada was an exceptional witness of the artistic events of the twentieth century, committed to finding his own way in art: his work has a dual soul, it is an ancient and modern enigma at the same time, the expression of a cultured and refined language capable of narrating a timeless beauty.

Italian fashion maestro Roberto Capucci is the subject of the major fall exhibition at Labirinto della Masone. Thirty years ago, in 1993, Franco Maria Ricci published a book of Capucci’s work as part of the Luxe, calme et volupté series: to honour that anniversary, the Fondazione Roberto Capucci, together with the Fondazione Franco Maria Ricci, have curated a new exhibition in collaboration with Sylvia Ferino. Roberto Capucci is an unequalled genius of Italian fashion and style, admired throughout the world, and his creations have been exhibited in major museums. The exhibition in Fontanellato aims to celebrate multiple aspects of his career, placing his dresses in dialogue with artworks from the collection to create unexpected and original associations and new artistic connections to startling effect.
Contemporary historians of fashion have agreed that the term “designer” fails to capture Capucci’s work: it is impossible to place him within a single category as his is a fully developed artistic practice. His dresses are architectonic structures in which colour, the undisputed star of the show, sculpts material, resulting in creations with unequalled expressive power.

Labirinto della Masone’s Autumn exhibition is dedicated to the iconic Dutch art magazine Wendingen. Innovative in its time, its publication coincided with a period of great transition for art and graphic design in Europe that saw the tradition of Jugendstil challenged by the emergence of both the Bauhaus in Weimar and De Stijl.
