On display at the Archaeological Civic Museum of Sarteano (Si) Inauguration Saturday 3 December, 4.30 pm
SARTEANO (SIENA) - The contemporary art exhibition "Rinascenza. Easypop Collection" will be inaugurated on Saturday 3 December, at 4.30 pm in the Archaeological Civic Museum of Sarteano. It presents paintings, sculptures and drawings between myths and fantastic heroes by the Roman artist Roberto Mazzeo, known as Easypop. The artist will be available to accompany the visit on the following day as well.
The exhibition, curated by Stella Severini on behalf of Intrepido Servizi (the company that manages cultural assets on behalf of the Municipality of Sarteano), is an integral part of the great Christmas program, characterized by the extraordinary collection of nativity scenes. The "Land of the cribs" is thus enriched with further cultural initiatives.
The "Rinascenza. Easypop Collection" exhibition will be open from 10:30 to 12:30 and from 16 to 19 on holidays and days before holidays, but from 24 December to 8 January the museum that contains it will remain open every day, with the same time. It is accessed with the normal ticket price. Among other things Intrepido, in collaboration with the Wake Up Sarteano Natural Shopping Center, offers customers of commercial activities a three-euro discount voucher, which brings the price of admission to museums and Rocca Manenti to five euros.
There are numerous exhibitions of Mazzeo in museums, historic buildings and art galleries throughout Italy: he is among the best known artists of contemporary pop art. Easypop's work consists of archaeological papers with mixed media, ceramics and paintings to define a perfect union between classical, Hellenic and Renaissance art (our universal cultural heritage) and the characters of Japanese and American cartoons, an integral part of the media imagination of a entire generation born between the 70s and 80s. The collection is conceived as an open project that faces new challenges. "Rinascenza" is the simple evolution of the popular that pays homage to archeology and art history with attention to young people. The paintings, sculptures and drawings created, trace an ideal path that mixes and makes the icons their own, regenerating them, giving them new life and offering the opportunity to deepen the knowledge of the same classic works cited through the story of anecdotes and mythological legends from which they derive.
