Date: Sunday 21th August 2022

Time: 9 am

Location: National Museum of Sea Archeology, via Strada Nuova 80 - Caorle

Description: The realities and desires, naturalistic suggestions and ideal settings of Maestro Riccardo Fiore Pittari (Rome, 1949 - lives and works between Rome and Salina) will be on display in Caorle.

The exhibition exhibits the Roman painter's reflections on the habitat of the sea and on the creatures that populate it, immersing him in a dreamlike vision full of evocative suggestions that plays with materials and historical-artistic references that have always traced his human identity first, then artistic and narrative. The works are placed in open dialogue with the museum exhibits that tell multiple aspects of the historical relationship between man and the sea, with its limits and contradictions, to make us reflect on how to imagine and set the future of this millennial bond, that give life to a dense and poetic reflection on nature and the dangers that threaten it.

Fiore Pittari therefore accompanies us into the depths of an unknown and fantastic sea which, however, seems to speak of dramatically real things, of a mortal hood that weighs on the very existence of ecosystems endangered by the wicked choices of a humanity that has chosen to devour the house where it is housed following only the logic of profit.

However, these works go beyond the simple ecological aspect and develop around a gaze in which, lyrically, the secret life of the oceans is revealed to us as a sudden illumination that pierces the darkness, like a moment of splendor that pierces the opacity of reality. showing us an infinite intertwining of marine transformations.
