SEZIONI. L’ARCHITETTURA ITALIANA PER LA DIVINA COMMEDIA

SpazioFMG per l’Architettura, the FMG Fabbrica Marmi e Graniti and Iris Ceramica brands’ exhibition gallery, is opening an exhibition entitled “Sezioni. L’Architettura italiana per la Divina Commedia” in which 70 Italian architects of different generations are invited to interpret the symbolic and narrative world of Dante.
The exhibition, curated by Luca Molinari with the assistance of Chiara Ingrosso, opens on Thursday, 14 December, confirming the Milanese gallery’s willingness to go beyond the field of design and approach various different areas of human endeavour related to architecture.

SpazioFMG per l’Architettura closes the year 2017 with another major group exhibition, following upon the recent “Controcampo | Gli Architetti italiani ci mettono la faccia” exhibition held in December 2016.

At 18:30 on Thursday, 14 November 2017  the Milanese gallery opens the group exhibition Sezioni. L’Architettura italiana per la Divina Commedia (“Sections: Italian architecture for the Divine Comedy”), in which 70 contemporary Italian architects of different generations are asked to offer their visual interpretation of Dante’s literary imagination as expressed in his “sections”: Hell, Purgatory and Paradise.

Artists and illustrators have imagined the three worlds represented in the Divine Comedy for centuries, representing this symbolic and narrative world in images picking up on the metaphors of the Tower of Babel and the Celestial City. But few twentieth-century artists have demonstrated an interest in the theme, or had the courage to approach it.
The one single, powerful exception is Giuseppe Terragni’s Danteum, the first work to attempt to give physical, spatial form to the Florentine poet’s vision.

The exhibition draws public attention to the theme once again, inviting architects and designers to offer their personal visual and textual interpretation of the most important work of poetry ever composed in the Italian language.

“In “Sezioni”, we asked key figures in Italian architecture to address an unusual challenge, and the results have been surprising.
By inviting prominent architects from different generations to redraw the section of the Divine Comedy, we created a new space for research that goes well beyond the traditional confines of design. We believe this exhibition offers a valuable opportunity not only to demonstrate Dante’s continued relevance to Italian culture, but above all to contribute to architectural debate through valuable, profitable dialogue with other fields of knowledge”.

Luca Molinari, scientific curator at the gallery, introduces the exhibition:
