The current exhibition at Villa Bardini, “Fanfare e silenzi. Viaggio nella pittura di Primo Conti,” is dedicated to the Florentine painter Umberto Primo Conti. Thirty years after his death, the show wants to illustrate and celebrate the artistic career of Conti, painter, composer and writer who belonged to the Italian avant-garde movement Futurism. In a chronological itinerary through the rooms of Villa Bardini, the display is divided into eight thematic sections, that correspond the different phases of Conti’s artistic career. Besides that, his oeuvre has been contextualized through the dialogue with artworks by other artists — teachers, friends, classmates … — connected with his creations. This relational exhibition responds to Conti’s own attitude, as he wanted to preserve not only his legacy but also the collective memory of an artistic period as extraordinary and flourishing as the Florence prior World War I. Until January 13, 2019.


Primo Conti: exposición en Villa Bardini de Florencia

Treinta años después de su muerte, la actual muestra de Villa Bardini, “Fanfare e silenzi. Viaggio nella pittura di Primo Conti”, quiere ilustrar y celebrar la plenitud de la carrera artística de Umberto Primo Conti, pintor, compositor y escritor florentino estandarte del Futurismo. Las salas de Villa Bardini, divididas en ocho secciones, recorren, a través de un itinerario cronológico y temático, las etapas de la pintura de Conti, enriquecidas con la confrontación de obras significativas de otros artistas (maestros, amigos, compañeros de clase…) que suscitan el dialogo con las piezas de Conti. Esta modalidad también responde a una actitud compartida por el propio artista con el fin de preservar no solo la memoria personal, sino también colectiva de una etapa artística tan extraordinaria como la florentina de las primeras dos décadas del siglo XX. Hasta el 13 de enero de 2019.
