Umberto Passeretti, un presente antichissimo

Type: Contemporary Art

An exhibition dedicated to Umberto Passeretti, a contemporary painter dealing with Roman classicism and a general memory of the past.

From 1985 Umberto Passeretti, a contemporary painter, deals with Roman classicism and in general with the memory of the past. For this reason,  a symbolic place of “Roman identity” like Mercati di Traiano Museo dei Fori Imperiali appears like the best place to host twenty of his works of art in the Big hall of the Museum. During the exhibition curated by Gabriele Simongini, the Roman artist made a gift for this extraordinary place taking as a main subject of his picture a “Prison”. The works of art (oils, tempera but also acrilycs) are part of the collection “Anatomia del panneggio”. In his works of art the admirable sculptural exhibit of the past turned into picture with the clear predominance of the main subject, moved by a new life and aimed at a new beginning
