Lizori. 2002. Acrylic on canvas. 150x200.
10 june 2015—7 september 2015
One of the leading contemporary Italian artists' solo exhibition is organized by the Antonio Meneghetti Scientific and Humanistic Research Foundation that encourages the youth of today to be more active and creative.

The exhibition includes more than 40 works of art - paintings that had become the result of the artist's trips to Russia in the period between 1995-2011, and unique art works made of murano glass.

As an artist, scientist, architect, musician and philosopher Antonio Meneghetti considers his every art work to be an absolutely autonomous manifestation of the universal sense of being, when a form and an image are produced from the inert matter through the movement of the paintbrush.

All the works on display can be characterized as lyrical abstraction that reveals the inseparable connection between a human being as the highest humanistic value and nature as the highest manifestation of the Universe. It is the language of non-object art that serves here as the perfect tool to embody the artist' ideas that turn landscape, still life and animalistic shapes into artistic improvisations.
