Life and masks from Pulcinella to clowns. On display are over seventy works by Alessandro Kokocinski inspired by the metamorphosis of the "mask", which the artist describes as a "mediator between us and the unfathomable concealed void". Papier-mâché is the absolute star of the show. Kokocinski combines the Russian ideas of fantasy with the realism of South America, the Italian and Spanish painting tradition with the Neapolitan folk theater monuments, and the wording of scenic art with a circus component.
Until 5 June. Monday to Sunday, from 9am to 7,30pm (closed on Tuesday)
