” The exposure a half-length portrait, Which can be sent anywhere, is greater Than That of a statue of a God who has his permanent home in a temple.”
( Walter Benjamin )

Four photographs, eight works on paper, an installation on wall and a Haiku through which the Artist invites us to become part, substance and essence of His project “germinated” by an action done on a sea beach and it’s all about a rose and a colour . “…A project, maybe, alchemic for the tremor of an energetic force – the colour – able to transform and inject light to the colourless  dress of the life…” as Gianfranco Labrosciano writes in the text that goes with the exhibit.

Mariano Filippetta was born in 1964 in Frosinone where he lives and works.

His first artistic experiences converge in the first important solo exhibition in the “Galleria dei Banchi Nuovi” in Rome in the 1989 with the title “Primo Vere”.
