The exhibition, which opened 31 January 2015, includes the gift made by the local sculptor Giulliano Vangi to his home town in 2013.
Vangi was one of the most celebrated Italian sculptors of his generation. The collection comprises 80 graphic designs in various formats, created using various techniques between 1964 and 2006.
The exhibition is displayed over three floors of Palazzo Pretorio. A selection of some graphic designs has been hung in the foyer of the Teatro Comunale Corsini, in Via della Repubblica, 3.
Included in the gift was the coloured plaster sculpture of Ragazza con vestito di lana [Girl with the woollen dress] which greets visitors at the entrance to Palazzo Pretorio in Piazza Cavour, opposite the house where Vangi was born.
This is the only public collection of the artist’s graphic designs and it enables visitors to look in detail at the particular techniques he used over time.
