A mountain of art: Ivo Soldini
“Una Montagna d’Arte”, an exhibition (2018-2019) of artist Ivo Soldini’s works, opens the biennial artistic project at Monte Tamaro.
The exhibition presents a selection of 19 monumental sculptures created by Ivo Soldini during the past two decades and accompanies the visitor through the sculptor’s career and his favorite themes, related to the human figure.
A new way of experiencing art within and in dialogue with the territory. The visitor confronts himself with the works of art in a direct and immediate manner, overcoming the diffidence and the sense of unfamiliarity that often undermine the non-specialist public’s impact with contemporary art in institutional showrooms.
“Una Montagna d’Arte” is an initiative of Monte Tamaro SA and the Egidio e Mariangela Cattaneo Foundation.
Ivo Soldini was born on 9 October 1951 in Lugano and currently resides in Ligornetto. After attending primary and high school in Ticino, he studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera and at the Università Statale in Milan.
From 1973 he begins an intense exhibition activity and from 1975 he devotes himself mainly to sculptures of small and medium format, mainly in bronze, but also in aluminum and plaster, accompanied, especially in recent years, by monumental sculptures.
The debut productions reveal a classical influence alternated with a naturalistic one, and an affinity to the movement of expressionism and informal art.
