Casino dei Principi di Villa Torlonia, in Rome, you can visit the exhibition “Francesco Messina. Novecento Contemporaneo”, curated by Maria Fratelli, Chiara Fabi and Chiara Battezzati, which tells the artistic parable of one of the most important sculptors of the last century. A wide range of works (81 in total, including bronze, terracotta and plaster casts) belonging to the permanent collection of the Francesco Messina Studio Museum in Milan outline the basic stages of the artist’s research and place his sculpture in relation to the works of 15 contemporary artists, from Andreas Senoner to Vanni Cuoghi, from Francesca Piovesan to Giulia Manfredi. The exhibition draws attention to the themes that Messina has focused on: the portrait as a direct opportunity for confrontation with the ancient masters, but also the human figure to be observed with modern eyes while respecting the realistic rendering; and again the small sculpture, with examples characterized by elegance and technical skill, and the monumental (with the portrait of Pius XII or with the large bronze horse commissioned in 1964 for the exterior of the Rai headquarters in viale Mazzini). Particularly fascinating are the sections dedicated to colored sculpture and dancers: if Messina with colors creates works of a realism bordering on obsession (for example, the portraits of his wife Bianca), in the sculptures dedicated to the dancers the artist focuses on movement, as well as on the anatomical study and the celebration of the female body (such as the sculptures depicting Aida Accolla, her muse, and the bronzebeatrice portraying a 9-year-old girl in full length).
