DIRE DARE BACIARE. Fabio Magnasciutti Exhibition

An exhibition of illustrations, irony and color by Fabio Magnasciutti

On the occasion of the release of his new volume, 'Dire dare baciare', published by Barta, an exhibition dedicated to Fabio Magnasciutti at Palazzo Merulana. With the illustrator exhibition, Palazzo Merulana, CoopCulture and Elena and Claudio Cerasi Foundation open the first series of exhibition projects for the 2018/2019 season.

The selection of the exposed tables recomposes, in the space of the Topfloor of Palazzo Merulana (4th floor), about two hundred vignettes part of Dire Dare Baciare, a thematic trilogy that unfolds along the walls of the exhibition hall, following the internal narration of the book: a personal, fluid trait, flowing from one table to the other, allowing the stylistic compatibility between the graphic sign and the author's critical thinking to emerge, in a concert of words and images of great compositional and poetic effectiveness.

Along with the pieces relating to the publication, in which there will be no lack of individual site-specific interventions, a precious exhibition of unpublished works by the artist will be created specifically for the exhibition.
