Sculptures from the Santarelli and Zeri Collections
The exhibition Sculptures from the Santarelli and Zeri Collections presented ninety sculptures, from ancient Rome to the 18th century, from the Santarelli Foundation and art critic Federico Zeri. Large stone fragments, bas-reliefs, busts and portraits were presented for the first time at Palazzo Sciarra in Rome, in mutual dialogue.
Organised by the Fondazione Roma and curated by Andrea G. De Marchi, the exhibition, which also presented a number of works from public institutions such as the Vatican Museums, the Academy of France and the Academy of Carrara, was structured in three sections: the first was the largest works in chronological order, the second was devoted to smaller works and samples of coloured marbles. The third part was devoted to portraits.
At the end of the exhibiiton was the the reconstruction of a sculptor's studio, with working tools and two works by Roman forgers from the mid-twentieth century: Gildo Pedrazzoni and Alceo Dossena.
