Francesco Pignatelli exhibits for the first time in Bologna. Working on the photographic reproduction with the aid of various manipulations, the artist forces the viewer to reconsider and revise elements already assimilated into his memory, which can be familiar cityscapes, Renaissance paintings or arcadian forests. In a constant reinterpretation and transformation of known figurative languages, the artist tries to reveal their depth freeing them from worn-out meanings and then arousing in the viewer the need for a new confrontation.
