Arte Alle Corti Palazzo Chiablese

Palazzo Chiablese, built on commission by Duke Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy in the XVI century. Benedetto Alfieri gave architectural unity of the building in 1753-54.

This is the last installation of the ' Arte Alle Corti' that I have visited.
Along the entrance to the courtyard, under the side arcade are two set of displays.

'Bottiglia' and
'Caraffante' by Domenico Borrelli. Both works belong to a series of sculptures depicting the metamorphic fusion between object and man: man-made object or man transformed into an object. The sculptures, about 2 meters high and made of bronze with patina different, represent legs and bodies which develop into the form of a carafe or bottle.

'Otto parole blu per confrontarsi con la luce' by Nicola Ponzio. Pontius works on the theme of books and writing as a generating source of poetic and intellectual experiences that go beyond the limits of experience of phenomenal reality.

In the center of the Courtyard displayed the work of  Luigi Mainolfi, 'Centaura' and 'Centaura Oro'.

And by the side is the  'Di materia in materia', work of Luigi Stoisa. In this sculpture, characterized by an essential formal elegance, the fragility of life represented by the egg emerged from the harsh realty represented by the heavy stones.
