THE FIRST ROOM
The art AGAINST corruption itinerary starts with a work with emblematic content: Italy upside down by Andrea Bianconi, AiLati (2017), a work specifically conceived for this exhibition. Bianconi, an artist from Vicenza, lives and works in Italy and in the USA. He has intended, in this work, to be outrightly frank. With the slender, precise, marks of his acrylic pen, marks that suggest a seismograph, he draws a map in line with the perspective made famous by Luciano Fabro’s work of 1968. Italy as an upturned country, ready to implode. Bianconi’s delicate lines launch a gentle warning.
