Igor Mitoraj Art Exhibition Ravello Festival 2012 Oscar Niemeyer Auditorium

Sculptures by Igor Mitoraj at Ravello's Auditorium Oscar Niemeyer

Every year the Ravello Festival is centered around a theme running through the art exhibitions, concerts and cultural events that take place during the summer.  Memory is the theme of the 2012 Ravello Festival and the current exhibition Memoriae, Mitoraj a Ravello. The monumental sculptural works of Polish artist Igor Mitoraj are on display on the terrace of Ravello’s Auditorium Oscar Niemeyer, and the setting is spectacular. This is exactly what that grand space was created for, and I hope Memoriae will be the first of many exhibitions. I stopped by not long ago on a day when the sky was a brilliant, clear blue – the perfect backdrop for taking photos of the works on display.

The exhibition Memoriae, Mitoraj a Ravello runs through September 8th, 2012. If your travels bring you to Ravello in the coming month, do walk the short distance from the center of town down to the Auditorium Oscar Niemeyer. If you miss the exhibition, don’t worry, Niemeyer’s striking modern architecture and the stunning backdrop aren’t going anywhere!

    I very much enjoyed the photographs. They are breathtaking. I saw that exhibit last September at Valley of the Temples in Sicily. The outdoor setting is the perfect backdrop, I think. About the vibrant colors; I have decided that when the sky in Italy is blue, it is a much bluer blue than anywhere else. I can think that if I want, no?? Thank you for sharing.
