The exhibition “tracks the artist’s personal journey and his creative elaboration. It also shows today’s trends in Italian art, ” said Mr Sciola. He concluded: “By visiting the exhibition and reading its catalogue, visitors will feel they are seeing each individual painting and all of the works at once through a kaleidoscope of lights, refractions and also interpretations that vary as perspectives change.”
