Mille Nanni is an exhibition opened on 1 July 2022 to inaugurate a series of meetings dedicated to Balestrini. It presents his artistic journey, exploring the complexity of his thought through archive material, collages, and sculptures from the nineties, in addition to his prose, and poems.
Nanni Balestrini’s work shows a powerful creative and political commitment, manifest through tireless experimental research spanning different expressive languages. A keen observer and protagonist of today’s world, Balestrini invites us to look at reality not as a monolith but to take it in through a thousand glances, a thousand visions, multiplying and distorting it, challenging it. The artist’s universe is composed of constellations of poetic words, denuded and sometimes violent, searching for authenticity in a world of neo-capitalist inauthenticity.
Complementing the permanent exhibition dedicated to him, “Mille Nanni” is a diffuse exhibition throughout the building, showcasing the multidisciplinary character of the artist’s work, with a focus on his poetic sensibility.
