Exhibition by Carlo Pizzichini and Gianfranco Meggiato “Black and Gold”.

On the occasion of the exhibition, new monochrome works by Carlo Pizzichini will be presented which, by balancing light and dark, full and empty, express his soul, his emotions, his memories, the psychological implications they contain, his subconscious as well as his conscience, translating all this unspeakable into rhythms, musical lines and creative passion. The sculptures by Gianfranco Meggiato present in the exhibition are modern forms that change, unfinished, asymmetric architectures and therefore iridescent, deceptive, fascinating and bearers of a profound psychological, anomalous message, which asks to be deciphered but to which everyone gives their own , personal, meaning, always free.
