The “DIS*ASTRI” exhibition, a conversation between Goya and Mario Vespasiani
The exhibition “DIS*ASTERS”, conversation between Goya and Mario Vespasiani, will be held on Sunday 15 January 2023 at 17.00 in San Benedetto del Tronto.
Tomorrow, therefore, the presentation of the awaited dialogue between Francisco Goyaone of the most celebrated masters of all time, e Mario Vespasiani, star of Italian art.
An exhibition that relates the different works of the two authors, who investigate the most extreme and profound experiences of life, from desperation to violence
unleashed by war, to joy and ecstasy.
As the curator of the exhibition writes Rosalba Rossi: much Light comes
from darkness, much genius from madness. Light of talent and non-approval.
Enter, but don’t look for a path, the only way is loss:
this is the ideal condition to listen to the intimate relationship between _Sogno and
Vision, in a surprising dialogue beyond time and space. I have
always seen the art that runs on an infinite thread, in the relationship between
past and present, without interruptions, but in a continuous confrontation e
this event is a powerful face-off between the masterpieces of
Francisco Goya and Mario Vespasiani, a timeless, rich dialogue
of references and nuances in the space of feeling.
This is intended to be the key to “DIS*ASTRI – The human condition from its abyss to glory”.
That is the ability to relate, through processes
of antithesis, subtraction, privation, as expressed in the prefix
Dis, or in opposing languages for colors and techniques, the yearning
ancestral and Man’s tension to the Value of Life, to his
extensions, creative implications and responsibilities, which feed it and
they transform it. That’s the reason why, when for the innumerable
requests and data recorded to date of over three thousand visitors,
we had the unexpected happy news of the extension of the exhibition
as of January 25, 2023.
The recent production of the master appeared to me as fulminant and astral
Mario Vespasiani: a connection with a powerful evocative energy e
visionary, the logos has spanned the centuries and the two messages have
started talking. From the ruthless analysis of the human condition, the
deflagration of the star, gave birth to a message of Force
interior, spirituality, connection, research and journey for values
Universals of man. From the point of view of the thought of the exhibition intended as
“living being” that lives, breathes and also evolves from energies,
vibrations, thoughts, input received from visitors (and in the hall the
book of signatures with comments attests it), at this stage
procrastinated. It calls to itself the three works of the thematic cycle “Kingdom of
Heaven” by Mario Vespasiani, bright and enlightened, in its best sense
deep. Vespasiani is an incessant experimenter and the selected works,
even bordering on the abstract, they reveal to us with unequivocal signs, the
depth of living, the sense of the sacred that surrounds us everywhere e
always, a God of and in the little things, reflected by the great ones.
Art is a space in which productions of
reality, real debates, perspectives and changes, it’s an ACTION
Creative thinking means that the artist is an actor
society not relegated to the margins, but a spokesman, an agitator of culture
which is the most important infrastructure, not the mere surface of the
company. Art and Culture are essential accomplishments for the correct
functioning of a community, is communication, interaction,
participation and any organization that does not promote this is
doomed to failure. So this is not meant to be an intervention
aesthetic, but a way of direct communication, reflection, between
citizens, environment and authorities to enter a process of
transformation, which first of all means rediscovering the meaning of
Goya and Vespasiani have never met, yet in listening to
their works it is as if they had done it countless times, closer
than you can imagine, because inhabited by the same overwhelming
passion for the human being and his adventure. They are explorers of
Life, in the Gift of the missing perspective, revealing to us what
we have before our eyes and we no longer see, in the mysterious labyrinth
they always know how to grasp the essence of life. Works that travel beyond
the cardinal points, beyond the limits of the understandable and visible. What
before us is precious because it brings to light an encounter never
happened, a dialogue never started, but resounding a thousand times. Art creates
bridges and unpredictable connections and this that has not been built
contemplate the final word.
will continue from 26 January onwards, elsewhere,
since dialogue is incessant, essential: it calls us, calls us
he questions, prods and exhorts us. A thought that walks, that cannot

value is in the sign of the highest of social achievements: Freedom
The exhibition will be available for viewing until 25 January 2023,
