Curated by Cesare Biasini Selvaggi, the Casino del Principe of the Musei di Villa Torlonia dedicates an exhibition to the Roman painter, Sergio Ceccotti, precursor of the revolution in the Italian painting during the last thirty years.

 

Divided into seven sections following a thematic and chronological order, the exhibition presents more than 80 works from 1958 to 2014, from the early paintings of the late fifties to the most known works of the "Ceccottian realism", influenced by pop, films noir, photo stories, comic strips and rebus of popular magazine.

 

As in Alfred Hitchcock’s films, disturbing mysteries lurk beyond doors and windows, stairs and corridors of impersonal bourgeois apartments or small hotel rooms. His anonymous, yet highly symbolic, spaces seem to precede or follow a moment of drama that we will not see.
