The exhibition is curated by Prof Paola Ballesi, professor of Aesthetics and former Director of the Academy of Fine Arts of Macerata in Italy, who personally met Di Sarro and wrote about his work.
Di Sarro was an artist focused on the cultural revolution that ripened in the sixties, thanks to the fertile soil that was tilled by the neo avant-garde, where the radicalism of new artistic trends, from music to theatre, dance and cinema to the figurative arts, made the revolution of scientific and aesthetic paradigms. This movement opened a new and different vision of the world and things, tangible on a global level.
The exhibition is comprised of eight sculptures and twelve enlargements, reproduced from original drawings by Di Sarro in 1972, which are placed side by side with eight sculptures by Villa.
To further promote the knowledge of this extraordinary Italian artist, two original prints by Di Sarro will be donated to the University of Pretoria Museums.
