Coloured bird sculptures will fly from the 5th of May into the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum.
The Renaissance house will celebrate the artist Toni Zuccheri with an exhibit dedicated to an ample nucleus of one-of-a-kind animal-themed works. The exhibit, curated by Rosa Chiesa and Sandro Pezzoli, will be an opportunity to focus on a particular aspect of the work of this very special artist, who looked at the world of nature as a privileged source of inspiration, and who always re-elaborated it in a poetic and personal way.
A significant nucleus of coloured bird sculptures – perhaps the most singular and poetic of Toni Zuccheri’s works – is juxtaposed with the permanent collection of the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum, where excellent craftsmanship is literally at home. In Zuccheri’s coloured bird sculptures, very different materials are used together to bring to life hoopoes, roosters, and ducks: one-of-a-kind works in which nature is exalted by extremely personal choices of expressive means. ‘Multi-faceted’ well describes the work of this artist, who dedicated his life to glass, always experimenting with new techniques, and using the most diverse materials such as wood, dry leaves, stones, bronze, corn cobs, and often recycled objects as supports, all chosen for the imprint given to them by nature, and for the charged properties of the materials, bearers of personal and collective memories.
This temporary exhibition is the ideal opportunity to realize special events, such as exclusive guided tours of the temporary exhibition and cocktails. Private events may take place in the elegant rooms during the morning and the evening: guests could see the coloured bird sculptures at the beginning and then join the Grand Salon or the Terrace for a drink. A fly into the noble past, a taste of the Renaissance.
