From Saturday 4 to Sunday 26 February, the church of Santa Maria della Spina will host the exhibition 'Lìtomachìe' by artist Matteo Tenardi, curated by Riccardo Ferrucci and with the critical contribution of art historian Simona Bartolena. The initiative, sponsored by the Municipality of Pisa and the Region of Tuscany, is organised by Casa d'Arte San Lorenzo, in collaboration with C.R.A. (Centro Raccolta Arti) and the support of FuoriLuogo.
The exhibition will be inaugurated on Saturday 4 February at 5 p.m. and can be visited as follows: Wednesday to Friday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The exhibition features three figures that each occupy the three sides of the church and a central installation that connects them. The three life-size subjects are depicted in the act of throwing a stone and are part of the 'Litomachìe' cycle: lithomachia (or stone-throwing), in fact, is a kind of stone battle practised, not always for purely recreational purposes, in medieval Perugia.
