OPERAE by Gianni Lucchesi

5 October 2023 @ 20:00 - 5 November 2023 @ 19:00

Rossetti Arte Contemporanea presents Operae by Gianni Lucchesi.

The installation is 13 meters tall and consists of 12 concrete cubes, on top of which sits a life-sized sculpture of a seated man gazing towards the horizon.

The interpretation. Knowledge, wisdom, and construction draw strength from an interplay between past, present, and future.The man lives in the present, open to receiving ail the stimuli offered by the surrounding environment in harmony with nature. He contemplates the future ahead, supported by a column symbolizing the value and importance of one’s intellect in history, seeking the laws that govern the harmony of the universe.

The Fibonacci sequence. Observing the sculpture from the apex, that is, from the block on which the man is seated, the Fibonacci sequence marks the rotation of the cubes, which, stacked one on top of the other, support the man in a contemplative posture. They undergo a slight twist, a rotation of a few degrees, precisely realizing the golden sequence 1,1,2,3,5. Metaphorically, the construction is not anchored to the ground by gravity; on the contrary, it is supported by the intellect of man.

Giordano Bruno. Across the entire length of the column, the hermetic seals of Giordano Bruno are impressed in gold, with decreasing intensity from top to bottom.Through imaginative effort, they express the forms of nature through intuition, capable of uniting our true essence with the infinite universe.

A school of great artists, a team of great companies.

The sculpture “Operae“ by Gianni Lucchesi is a project developed in collaboration with Carlo Alberto Arzelà, Julia Caracciolo, Sandra Bozzarelli, and the Hangar studio.

The artist worked with the company Giannoni & Santoni to develop both the structural solutions of the work and the aesthetic finishes of the surfaces of the concrete cubes, thanks to the use of the company’s modern technologies combined with craftsmanship of high artistic value. The artist shaped and patinated the resin sculpture in collaboration with the company Poliart, a leader in 3D moderation of expanded polystyrene. Filotto Srl designed and produced the internal and external lighting of the work. Lo Studio i Ingegneria e Dintorni in Pisa designed the statics of the work.
