THE NEW “PERMANENT COLLECTION OF CONTEMPORARY ART” OPENS IN ITALY (MARCHE REGION) SHOWING 158 WORKS, INCLUDING A PIECE BY ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI

Saturday April 27, 2013 (10:30 am) at Palazzo Gasparini (a XVII Century palace) in Mercatello sul Metauroa picturesque and fascinating medieval town in Marche region (Pesaro Urbino, Italy) – will open the new Permanent Collection of Contemporary Art as a  completion of the St. Francis Museum of Ancient Art which will shortly be reopened to the public after the restorations. 

The collection shows 158 works including 32 sculptures and 126 paintings by established national and international artists. The initiative was made possible thanks to enthusiasm, passion and tenacity of artist and sculptor Pasquale Martini who has involved in the ambitious and prestigious project, the mayor of Mercatello sul  MetauroGiovanni Pistola, with the Municipal Administration, the local tourism association (Pro Loco) and the whole community. The works hosted in the Collection  have been generously donated by the selected artists. The official catalogue has been entirely realized with the contribution of Banca dell’Adriatico, a strong advocate of cultural promotion in the Marche region.

Bonita Cleri and Silvia Cupini – Art Historians at Urbino University – curated the critical texts about the artworks. The new Permanent Collection of Contemporary Art – Prof. Cuppini writes in the presentation of the catalogue – is  an important initiative that aims to extend Mercatello’s role as a place of art and contemporary feeling.

The permanent collection displays also a work created by Roberto Alborghetti for his “Lacer/actions” research about torn and decomposed publicity posters on outdoor billboards and about urban tokens. 

Roberto Alborghetti was proud to donate his work accepting the invitation from the Organization. Curator Pasquale Martini viewed some of Roberto Alborghetti’s works focusing his attention on an image that, according to Martini, depicts and interprets the sense of Alborghetti’s research about the “decomposed and contaminated signs of our times”.

The piece is titled “There is some chaos, with a focal point” (canvas, 63 x 43). The image was “captured” in Milan during a cloudy day on December 2010. Roberto Alborghetti is very glad to be part of this collection gathering national and international artists who are developing new forms and expressions in modern art.
