Edited by Sergio Risaliti


  • Works by a well-known contemporary Italian artist that evoke a sense of timelessness and reflect on memory, antiquity, and history

Full Description

Senza data (Undated), an exhibition at the Stefano Bardini Museum in Florence, presents a series of works by Italian artist Luca Pignatelli painted on railway tarpaulins, wood, paper, sheet metal, and Persian carpets from the early 20th century. The painted carpets stand out immediately for their size and their link with the vast collection of carpets in the museum. Luca Pignatelli studied architectural composition during the period influenced by the theories of Aldo Rossi and the idea of the sedimentary growth of history. He is an artist able to accept the challenge of large-scale paintings, working with unusual supports on which he overlays his own selection of images, icons of collective memory like trains, planes, machines, and relics of classical culture. This catalog includes an interview with the artist and an essay by director of the Museo Novecento in Florence.
