Andrea Bacchi , 2021

ML Fine Art is pleased to present the catalogue “RITORNO AL BAROCCO: FONTANA, LEONCILLO, MELOTTI” published by Marinotti Edizioni in the occasion of the homonymous exhibition that took place from 2 February to 30 April 2021. Andrea Bacchi, recognized as an important expert in the field of the Italian baroque sculpture and director of the Fondazione Federico Zeri in Bologna, is the curator of both the exhibition and its accompanying catalogue. The book features an opening text where Bacchi investigates the shared interest in the baroque culture of Lucio Fontana, Leoncillo Leonardi and Fausto Melotti and marks the connection between the ceramic production of the XVII century and the XX century. The fact-sheets of the works on view are curated by Roberto Cobianchi, Professor at the University of Messina.
