Belgrade: “Contemporary Day” dedicated to Luigi Di Sarro

Contemporary Day is an initiative which promotes the world of contemporary art with a special emphasis on Italian culture. ​The Italian Cultural Institute of Belgrade participates in this event with an exhibition dedicated to Luigi Di Sarro. The exhibition “Theater in the form of photography ‘, organized on the occasion of the fortieth anniversary of the artist’s death in collaboration with the Luigi Di Sarro Documentation Center of Contemporary Art Research, will remain open until 22 October. The inauguration of the exhibition was the occasion for the presentation of the biography of Luigi Di Sarro, who died prematurely, at the young age of thirty-seven in 1979, killed for a fatal misunderstanding during the period of social and political turmoil in Italy known as the Years of Lead. The author of the book ‘That night in Rome’ is journalist Carla Cucchiarelli. A physician and artist, an unwavering experimenter, during the Sixties and Seventies Di Sarro practiced drawing, painting, engraving, sculpture, photography and performance, focusing in particular on themes related to the body, movement and light and to the abstraction of geometric signs and figures. He left a vast artistic production (paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures, graphics, projects, notes, aphorisms) that constitutes the core of the historical archive which is located at the Documentation Center of Contemporary Art Research dedicated to him by his family in 1981. Works by Luigi Di Sarro are present in various Italian and foreign public collections.
