Presentation of “The book” by Silvio Porzionato

23 February 2023 @ 19:30 - 20:30

The first major, unpublished and comprehensive publishing work dedicated to the artist Silvio Porzionato.
A hardcover volume that is divided into 3 sections for no less than 264 full-color pages.
Stories, reflections, interviews and a catalog of works, all in dual language, Italian and English. “What a fantastic spectacle life is! What an intriguing web of stories and people. And what a precious privilege it would be to be able to relive it played out on the stage of a small theater, or projected on the big screen. What a wonderful journey, to be able to observe one’s existence from the outside, review it and enjoy it as if it were a play of incredible realism.” This is how Silvio Porzionato begins his monographic catalog published by iemme edizioni (Naples, 2022). An editorial project that Alberto Tondella, the volume’s editor, describes as follows: “If life is a journey, this volume is a stage, a stop to take two photos, have a sip of water and look back to observe how far one has come. Silvio’s, like so many artists’ lives, is an existence lived in a rush, with his foot pressed on the accelerator. It is frenzy, it is the need to finish one work in order to start another, it is wheezing about not having enough time to be able to accomplish all that the soul can imagine.
the book is characterized by three souls. The first is an account of Silvio’s artistic life, presented through images that speak of anxieties, joys, and goals achieved and lost. The second part is a chat among friends over a glass of wine. The third is an important collection of Silvio’s most significant works.”

The book presentation will take place on Thursday, Feb. 23, at 6:30 p.m. in the presence of artist Silvio Porzionato and author Alberto Tondella.

A me piace dipingere la carne,
mi piace dare luce agli occhi,
adoro tutte le sfumature di colori che ci sono sulla carne.
