Stage no. 3 Hidden Treasures discovering Forme nel Verde

Welcome to stage no. 3 of Hidden Treasures.

Like the Horti Leonini, the streets of San Quirico and the entire Val d’Orcia are the “en plein air” stage of the event Shapes in the Green, so the rooms on the second floor of Palazzo Chigi Zondadari “Allegory of the Earth”, “Phaeton” and “Minerva drives away the Giants”, become a permanent home for the works that the artists called to exhibit in the various editions of the Exhibition, from the 70s to the present day, have donated to the municipal administration.

The museum itinerary guides the visitor on a journey between ancient, contemporary and future, in an immersive experience in the world of art. It is in fact a temporal itinerary in which the works, heterogeneous in stylistic techniques and expressive languages, are exhibited in chronological order, from the least to the most recent.

The museographic setup therefore followed an architectural and interior design approach and language that respected the context, protecting the shell, the Palace, permeated with history and art, turning an eye to the past, to the ancient. The installation adopts a contemporary language through the choice of materials, colors and display forms and projects itself towards the future through a flexible exhibition system that can be implemented over time. Where the bases of the works had already been created by the authors, they were maintained as an expression of the artist himself and his time. For works without supports, ad hoc bases have been designed which, due to height and exposure, enhance the work of art and allow for optimal use.

In “Fetonte”, in addition to the originals donated by the artists, three-dimensional models made with a 3D printer are exhibited, where reproduction was possible, in imitation of the works on display, to allow a tactile experience.
