On the surface of each texture, phrase, line and character, Alexandra Prieto creates an imaginary world full of multiple meanings dictating their own rules, taking us on a journey to the art melody.
“The artist Alexandra Prieto in 2012 gained by Movement Contemporary Art “MAC Honorable Mention”. Either in its theoretical basis, either in your shed practice, translates not a simple game chromatic extravagance, but as a research tool and finding new formal solutions. The plastic work recreates new forms and attitudes that when they open a new formal space of contemplation, introduce and expand the field of art and can be considered today as percepcionalmente plastic objects where the assumption is involved in artistic aesthetic.” – Álvaro Faria (2012)

“From Piero Della Francesca to Botticelli the color intensely flies” – Giuliano Caporali
The memory and soul of the Renaissance come to a new life in Caporali’s paintings, represented by those colors which have made the story of the most important period in Florentine history. What he means to do is to reproduce in his paintings simple sensations, linking the past with the present, to give memories a new life, a continue flux of harmonies and balance characterized by instinctive emotions and different states of mind. It is only through the signs, the drops and the overlapping colors obtained spontaneously, that you can capture emotions and memories. Conceptual art has the task to express feelings and sensations that transcend the concept of beauty. The study and passion of Giuliano Caporali push him to conceive new experiments using the same chromatic spectra of Renaissance, to which he is strongly tied. This is the reason why the title of the exibhition is inspired by the colors of the past used like instruments of the memory. The paintings created by Caporali for the room aim to communicate ancient and magic messages, so that the colors can enter the dreams of our guests by providing the right rest and the right emotion .

The Renzo Maggi Sculptured Beauty
“Sculpting is my daily life … as I carve the stone I plunge into it and feel my vital energy multiply.” – Renzo Maggi
Art is of course for who creates it, but also for those who benefit from it … it’s a never-ending journey in search of meditative solitude … it holds the deep sense of humanity and the values that can help us to rise out of the burden of life. Surging from the glowing marble of “Monte Altissimo” in the Apuan Mountains of High Versilia (known as “ Michelangelo’s mountain”), these works once again endeavour to narrate the Greek myth of Beauty present in Praxiteles, Michelangelo, Bernini, Henry Moore, Marino and Dazzi. They are on display in this sacred place in Florence – Piazza San Lorenzo – where the Medici commissioned the creation of one of the emblems of the Renaissance. The Church of San Lorenzo, named after Lorenzo the Magnificent, throbs with many works by Brunelleschi, Donatello, Michelangelo e Verrocchio. It is indeed an honour and privilege for me to present to the guests of Art Inn some of my works, the result of my profound passion and love for this particular kind of art.
