The exhibition brings together over 230 pieces of work, including masterpieces, which are accompanied by photographs and films to paint the full picture. Visitors will be treated to discoveries in every direction, as part of the journey which has been orchestrated by curator Émilie Bouvard, the Giacometti Foundation’s Director of Collections and Science.

Continuing at the Adriano Ribolzi Gallery:
Until the end of August, this exhibition continues to relate the story of a unique and daring encounter between four artists with different horizons. Adriano Ribolzi said: “For this second part of the Centenary of Maison Ribolzi, it is with the same passion, with the same commitment that I invest in the search for renowned artists offering interesting and high-level works and creations. Sergio Fermariello, one of the leaders of contemporary Italian artists, corresponded perfectly to my wish and I am happy to welcome him within my walls.” Fermariello’s works are paintings with figures that can be interpreted as warriors.
