A solo exhibition featuring Italian artist Constanzo Rovati has opened at the Sentinella within the ancient walls of the Citadel.
Percorso Di Vita – is the title of the exhibition, which is taking place as part of the programme of events for this year’s Gaulitana: Festival of Music.
The exhibition, which opened on Easter Sunday, has already attracted large crowds to view this marvellous artworks.
The peculiarity of Costanzo Rovatilies precisely in the fact that he does not repeat himself: each artwork is the result of an emotion filtered through a huge photographic memory that, combined with his easy manual skill, would be translated into creativity.
Costanzo Rovati was born in Milan in 1939. Since childhood, he always showed a great aptitude for drawing, with a particular predisposition to curiosity and originality.
After an academic experience marked by strong opposition by his teachers, who were definitely reluctant to accept artistic experimentation, he decided to do it all alone, in order to discover new forms, new expressions and new artistic horizons.
The works of Costanzo Rovati are on display in important public and private collections in Italy, the US, France, Germany, Switzerland, England, Netherlands, Martinique and St. Vincent & the Grenadines.
Costanzo Rovati: Percorso di Vita is being held in collaboration with Verso l’Arte and Istituto Nazionale Arte Contemporanea. The institute is also presenting a book about the exhibition for international distribution.
The main artifact, Insegnamenti (300x200cm), will serve as backdrop for Gaulitana Festival concerts held at the Gozo Ministry Hall in St. Francis Hall.
The exhibition is open to the public Monday to Sunday from 9:00am to 5.00pm until the 29th of April.
