Until 27 August , Palazzo delle Esposizioni , Via Nazionale, 194

In recent years, Francesco Vezzoli has developed his artistic practice by creating a bridge between the contemporary imagination and the history of art. A practice that led him to address his poetics to ancient art, the past and its icons, and to extricate himself between different languages, in a game of references and mixes between classical, solemn, eternal and pop culture. The result is an intense mosaic of iconic classic works, surprising unpublished finds, masterpieces of world cinema and a touch of contemporaneity. This coexistence of semantic levels is already particularly evident at the entrance to the exhibition, in the grandiose rotunda, where visitors are greeted by a series of works from the 24Hours Museum project, which Francesco Vezzoli produced in 2012 in collaboration with Prada to be exhibited for just one day in the historic Palais d'Iéna in Paris.
