Fernando Botero exhibition organized by Palazzo Pallavicini curated by Francesca Bogliolo
Exhibitions, Italy, Bologna, 12 October 2019
The autumn season promises to be exciting for the visitors of Palazzo Pallavicini: the suggestive halls of the splendid historic Bolognese structure, in Via San Felice 24 a few steps from the Due Torri and Piazza Maggiore, will host an important event from 12 October 2019 to 12 January 2020 exhibition dedicated to the Colombian artist FERNANDO BOTERO.
The exhibition promoted by Gruppo Pallavicini S.r.l, composed by Chiara Campagnoli, Deborah Petroni and Rubens Fogacci and curated by Dr. Francesca Bogliolo together with the artist.

The corpus of the exhibition consists of 50 unique works never seen before in the capital of Emilia, including a series of drawings made with mixed media and a fine set of color watercolors on canvas. The exhibition, divided into six sections, respects the themes dear to the artist and focuses on the poetic eye that he is able to pose to the world, giving a beauty made of abundant volumes, enveloping colors and original iconographies. A visionary hymn to existence that deepens the design intended as the foundation of the form, primary and essential tool of beauty.
Among the selected subjects appear characters related to bullfighting and the circus, silent and balanced still lifes, delicate nudes, religious personalities, individuals caught in their everyday life: a visual review that takes into account Botero's intense visual research, aimed at the affirmation of its characteristic language.
Among the works exhibited are the secrets of life, hidden under presences by burly volumes, people or objects waiting for a random or voluntary movement. In perfect balance between irony and nostalgia, dreamlike atmospheres and fairytale reality, Italian classicism and South American culture, Botero's art is the creator and bearer of a figurative and personal style, able without delay even on this occasion to involve and fascinate the beholder.
Creative freedom and monumentality represent the fil rouge of the exhibition, whose preparation was designed with the Academy of Fine Arts of Bologna directed by Prof. Enrico Fornaroli and realized in collaboration with the specialist two-year MA in set design and exhibition and museum spaces. thanks to Prof. Enrico Aceti, Prof.ssa Rosanna Fioravanti, Prof. Michele Chiari and Dr. Erasmo Masetti together with students Alessandro Barbera, Larissa Candido Bergamaschi, Cecilia Giovine, Ester Grigoli, Sarah Menichini, Bianca Piacentini, Rossella Pisani, Elena Romagnani and Tatiana Sànchez Sandoval.
