EXHIBITION Rami. Veronica Montanino

> Exhibition sheet

From the Casino Nobile, Museums of Villa Torlonia, the artist Veronica Montanino takes us to the heart of her project "la decorazione", understood as "the art of contamination of the space that has nothing to do with the fetish object but has to do with the imaginative capacity to create a magical space".

Talk: the immersive worlds of Veronica Montanino and Anna Onesti
A video in which the floating world of Anna Onesti's kites and Japanese paper tapestries confront the reality of Veronica Montanino's metamorphoses. The two artists on show with Rami and Un mondo fluttuante respectively at the Casino Nobile and the Casina delle Civette at Villa Torlonia meet the curators to discuss the themes of nature and its transformation, and the relationship with the classical and oriental worlds.

EXHIBITION Un mondo fluttuante. Opere su carta di Anna Onesti

> Exhibition sheet

From the meaning of impermanence linked to Buddhist culture, the term Ukiyo in the 17th century came to indicate the new Japanese sensibility devoted to ephemeral pleasures. And so European art between the 19th and 20th centuries, inspired by the graphics of the Japanese masters, inherited the allusive and evocative capacity linked to the most rapid and fluid calligraphic sign. Anna Onesti, a contemporary artist who is an expert in traditional Japanese artistic techniques, is part of this trend of unconventional sign that is capable of offering renewed poetic suggestions.

EXHIBITION Alchimie di terra e di luce i mille volti della Ceramica di Guerrino Tramonti (Faenza 1915-1992)

> Exhibition sheet

The video shows the work of the artist from Faenza, considered one of the most interesting and prolific creators of ceramic works of art in the 20th century, an innovator of forms, techniques and materials. The dreaming and visual atmosphere of Tramonti's works finds its perfect setting in the timeless dimension of Casina.

Massimo Isola
Guerrino Tramonti is one of the leading Italian ceramists of the 20th century. The Faenza-based artist has created a great contemporary artistic production through ceramics and has managed to bring together a vast heritage of traditions in his work.
Massimo Isola, president of the AICC, tells us about him in this video.

Giuliano Vitali
The voice of Giuliano Vitali, author of Guerrino Tramonti's biography, narrates the works of the Faenza artist and his departure from the semiotics of the sign to embrace the intuitive and cultured semiotics of colour and satinous surfaces.

The Japanese spirit of Guerrino Tramonti
Eccentric, aristocratic, melancholic, solitary, introverted, Tramonti creates an eclectic style in which there is a profound affinity with what Westerners call 'the Japanese spirit'. In pursuit of the Japanese splendour of ceramic colour, between 1962 and 1968 the alchemist Tramonti developed a "high", noble and resistant material, with a solid structure and refined appearance, capable of supporting the minimalist and monumental forms typical of his ceramics. "When I make a shape I think of a sculpture, not at all of a traditional container," the artist said. The Japanese spirit shines through the universe of his expressive forms, which exalt daily gestures, calligraphic writing, the materiality of objects and chromatic research.
