Edited by Saretto Concinelli


  • Documents an exhibition at the Forte di Belvedere in Florence, where Davide Rivalta creates a savannah-like installation with life-size bronzes of buffalos, eagles, wolves, and a rhinoceros
Full Description

Italian sculptor Davide Rivalta seeks out wild animals in their natural habitat and in captivity, then creates sculptures in bronze that capture their energy, otherness, and power. This book documents an exhibition at the Forte di Belvedere in Florence, where Rivalta turns the gallery and garden into a savannah with life-size buffalos, eagles, wolves, and a rhinoceros. Site-specific wall drawings of large birds highlight another artistic practice that the artist uses to explore the untamed essence of the animal world. His works are on show in permanent exhibitions in various cities, both in Italy and abroad, and have been shown in many art galleries and museums.
