The exhibition, curated by E. Pontiggia, officially reopened the ‘Aula Ottagona’ to the public following repeated renovations over many years. 16 sculptures were exhibited, all standing on bases arranged in a circle (with only one in a display case). “The great sculptors of ancient times, of the past, were like magicians. They talked with space, with immensity, with mystery. These things form the reasoning behind sculpture” (Piero Cascella). Blue filters were added to the projectors in the fixed lighting system to evoke the celestial sphere. The works was lit up individually so that they emerged from the surrounding darkness “like stars in the heavens”.
