@fondazioneprada


If you happen to be around, here an interesting exhibition in #Milan: 'Post Zang Tumb Tuuum. Art Life Politics: Italia 1918–1943" by Germano Celant, #FondazionePrada.  The exhibition explores the world of art and culture in Italy in the interwar years. Based on documentary and photographic evidence of the time, it reconstructs the spatial, temporal, social and political contexts in which the works of art were created and exhibited, and the way in which they were interpreted and received by the
public of the time.
The exhibition design, conceived by New York studio 2x4 in conjunction with the curator, provides an immersive experience consisting of twenty partial reconstructions of public and private exhibition rooms.
Don't be missed. #Extraordinary

CATTEDRALE VEGETALE
GIULIANO MAURI/ Art in Nature
@GIULIANOMAURICATTEDARELLODI


The artist Giuliano Mauri died at the age of just 71 on 29th May, 2009 leaving behind several unfinished projects. A few years ago, his family decided to do their best to make at least one of his last wishes, a “Cattedrale Vegetale” for his town, a project which was immediately taken up the Municipality.
Over the years, following several changes within the city councils, not to mention the pressing need to clean and reclaim the area on which the Cathedral stands, its construction has suffered a series of unfortunate delays.  
On 20th October 2016, the wooden structure of the “Cattedrale Vegetale” designed by Giuliano Mauri, the Art-in-Nature artist died in 2009,  was completed. 
In November 2016, after the commissioning of the work safety, the sponsors and the city administration began the construction of the Cathedral getting 108 oak trees - 60 cm high, planted inside the wooden columns that make up the 5 naves.
