Carlo Levi. L’umanità dipinta con le parole [Humanity painted with words]

22 July - 11 October 2014

​A little over a year after its opening, CUBO is organising the first public exhibition of works from the Group's artistic heritage. The aim of the exhibition 'Humanity Painted with Words' with works by Carlo Levi is to celebrate one of the most significant figures of the 20th century, who through his profound pietas was interested and passionate about human affairs, wherever he was. He manifests his love for his neighbour in his choice to initially be a doctor, then a political militant, an artist and finally an admirer and defender of the seemingly harsh and inhospitable land that was Lucania at the time.

13 of his works belonging to the Unipol Group's Heritage are exhibited, accompanied by some period films granted by Istituto Luce.

The exhibition traces the evolution of his painting style, closely related to the skilful use of words in depicting humanity. Indeed, painting and writing are the forms through which the artist expresses the best of his essence and ability to describe reality for what it is.

The exhibition of works then serves as a starting point for a reflection on the relationship between Levi and his fellow man. As his long-time friend Jean Paul Sartre pointed out, 'his great passion for life' and 'his kind of loving curiosity about all human forms of living' were the driving force behind his existence. To quote Sartre again, 'Everything fits together, everything holds together in Levi. First a doctor, then a writer and an artist for one and the same reason: an immense respect for life. And this same respect is at the origin of his political commitment, as well as at the source of his art'. ​​​​






CUBO's exhibition project is enriched by a multimedia APP created ad-hoc that allows the user to intuitively and autonomously expand the exhibition-related content – from the Apple Store and Google Play.   

​​

At the end of the exhibition the contents can be viewed on Mediarte,  an interactive application on the multimedia tables of the Mediateca containing the archive of the exhibitions held in the CUBO exhibition spaces. ​
