Exhibition “Scart” to Dante Alighieri | Peccioli
01/06/2023 - 30/06/2023
Palazzo Senza Tempo
Via Carraia, 13
The exhibition dedicated to Dante Alighieri at Palazzo Senza Tempo in Peccioli, a medieval village on the foothills of the Val d’Era, will remain open in an extraordinary way for the Easter and spring holidays. A special exhibition, in which the homage to the Supreme Poet is signed by Scart, the art project of Gruppo Hera, which creates works of art from waste, contributing to the spread of a culture of recovery and reuse of materials.
Visiting the exhibition, organised by the Municipality of Peccioli, in collaboration with Belvedere Spa (the company that manages the Peccioli waste treatment and disposal plant) it will be possible to see for oneself 12 works created by the students of the Fine Arts Academies of Ravenna, Florence and Carrara inspired by the Divine Comedy. Taking their cue from the engravings of Gustave Doré, a 19th century French artist who achieved fame precisely for his illustrations of the Comedy, the three Academies have created 6 large panels (180×250 cm) depicting moments from the three canticles of Hell, Purgatory and Paradise.
The exhibition also includes six large sculptures of Dante’s head inspired by Enrico Pazzi’s statue in Piazza Santa Croce in Florence, three of which were also made by young people from the San Patrignano rehabilitation community in their Waste Art workshop. The common denominator of all the works on display is the young artists’ use of recycled materials which, in the Scart workshop – set up at Herambiente’s Pisa and Castelfranco di Sotto facilities – acquire an entirely original aesthetic dimension, capable of relaunching the great message of reuse.
