The volume is the catalog of the installations exhibited by Sandro Chia in Florence, (Pitti Palace, Square SS. Annunziata, The Archaeological Museum). As Achille Bonito Oliva points out in his letter to the artist, Sandro Chia has managed to establish an original and sincere dialogue with the past, he has “enlarged the family of art without space and time limits”.
“The scene that hosts your exhibition is made of logical seams, affirmations of truth and falsity, simulation, artifice and imitation of history that now however finds authenticity in the pacifism of your images and the ones from the past”. (Achille Bonito Oliva)
Critical contributions by Antonio Paolucci, Sandro Chia, Achille Bonito Oliva.
