The Art of Physics - from Luigi Russolo to Renzo Bergamo

From 12 March and until 3 July, the Palazzo Vescovile di Portogruaro, with the exhibition The Art of Physics - from Luigi Russolo to Renzo Bergamo, is preparing to offer a truly unique experience to a large audience, proposing in a formula absolutely original, through immersive and multi-sensorial paths with audio and video, the reading of the great monographic work of Bergamo of which more than 90 works will be on display.

Bergamo, born in Portogruaro as the fellow futurist composer Luigi Russolo (1885-1947), lived here his first years of life in Portogruaro, already distinguishing himself from adolescence as an enfant prodige of painting. Moving to Milan, he initially participated in Astrarte (a movement established in the 1970s with the aim of going beyond the boundaries of space in search of a new cosmology), to subsequently continue a personal journey, which led him to investigate the new discoveries of physics with a \"universal\" language where signs and colors become light, vibration, energy and sound.

The exhibition spread throughout the territory, starting from its main location in Palazzo Vescovile, will propose an exhibition itinerary that will touch the Sala delle Colonne of the Town Hall, the foyer of the \"Luigi Russolo\" Theater and the \"Space Mazzini\" exhibition space with the sign of a path in the art of physics, of space, of matter that is everywhere around us.
With this initiative, the city of Portogruaro celebrates the \"return to Porto\" of its illustrious son, Renzo Bergamo, after a long and happy career as an artist that has seen him among the protagonists of the last fifty years of art history, exhibiting his works from Europe to the United States and back, as in the last major solo exhibition at the Castello Sforzesco in Milan in 2013 after his untimely death in 2004.
