Idee di pietra. Giuseppe Penone a Caracalla
June 7 – October 30, 2022
Baths of Caracalla, Rome
Giuseppe Penone's sculptures return to dialogue with the architecture of the past in the unique scenario of the Baths of Caracalla, for an event promoted by the Special Superintendence of Rome, directed by Daniela Porro, and curated by Francesco Stocchi: four bronze trees (Identity, Triplex, Ideas of Stone - Elm and Ideas of Stone - Cherry) installed in the pool of the ancient natatio, which, set within the suspended and timeless atmosphere of the monumental ruins, invite to reflect on the emblematic relationship between man and nature, space and time.
The exhibition is produced by Electa, that publishes a new edition of Penone's writings for the occasion.
