The long-awaited Sculpture Biennial in Gubbio

Italian contemporary sculpture is back under the spotlight in Gubbio, taking center stage since October 16th and until January 15th 2017 in the splendid “stage” of the 14th-century Consuls’ Palace and 15th-century Ducal Palace.

The Sculpture Biennial inaugurated in 1956 in the Umbrian city; its last edition was held in 2008, and the event is finally retuning after an 8-year wait thanks to the efforts of the Gubbio Municipality and Umbria’s Superintendence of Archaeology, Fine Arts and Landscape.

The two wonderful palaces have opened their doors to both young artists and masters, with curators Graziella Cirri and Roberto Borsellini dedicating a section of the show to models by sixteen students. One of them will be included in the artistic itinerary in Ranghiasci Park, alongside well-known sculptors.

The exhibition also showcases plastic creations by a number of artists of national and international fame, as well as a space dedicated to works by leading figures of the 20th century, such as Leoncillo Leonardi, Enrico Castellani and Arnaldo Pomodoro.
