Umberto Mastroianni on the sea of Lipari

The section of Contemporary art of the archaeological park of Lipari reopens with theexhibition of a series of important works by Umberto Mastroianni.

The review curated by Giordano Bruno Guerri explores the research of one of the great innovators of the twentieth century through thirteen important works.

It starts from the Thirties when Mastroianni still looks at classical sculpture by choosing mythological and religious subjects such as Female nude and bronze mask of 1939.

We move on to the Second World War with works inspired by the values of freedom and commitment gained during the Resistance.

The rest of the review reflects the transition toabstractionism influenced by the Futurism of Umberto Boccioni first and of Marcel Duchamp and Constantin Brancusi and ends with the works of the Eighties-Nineties well represented by Croto (1984-1985).
