Showcases from the Duilio Cambellotti Archive

curated by Daniela Fonti and Francesco Tetro

The exhibition curated by Daniela Fonti and Francesco Tetro stems from the scientific reorganisation work carried out by the Archive during the preparation of the Villa Torlonia exhibition, which was an important opportunity for a general reconsideration of Cambellotti’s work, also in the light of the rich and unpublished photographic documentation currently being inventoried.

The exhibition, which features two hundred works with an evocative layout, all belonging to the Archive and in most cases available to collectors, aims to present lesser-known or completely unpublished materials that show the artist’s modus operandi in the various stages of defining a graphic or plastic idea (from the rough sketch to the finished work) and the ever-present relationship between different techniques.

The subdivision of the exhibition into thematic areas (applied arts, sculpture, illustrations, etc.) will accompany the visitor along a richly evocative path and give greater visibility to a work, the daily work of the Archive, that normally takes place behind the scenes.
