TRACES. Works from the Unipol Group Heritage

11 June to 3 September 2018

​​​​​​​​​​From 11 June to 3 September CUBO presented TRACES a selection of works from the Unipol Group's Artistic Heritage.

The idea for the exhibition came from the publication of the first general catalogue of the Group's works to mark CUBO's fifth birthday on 26 March.  It was subsequently decided that the works would go on display at an exhibition at CUBO to underscore their importance and quality but also to highlight the Group's social responsibility towards artistic and cultural heritage, the result of various acquisitions and collection activities but also mergers between different insurance companies.

As Pierluigi Stefanini, chairman of the Unipol Group, commented: "In pursuing corporate social responsibility, I believe it is essential to share this artistic heritage with the community and make it accessible to an increasing number of people."
 
The catalogue Traces of identity in Italian art. Works from the Unipol Group heritage, with text by Christian Caliandro, published by Silvana Editoriale, was recognised by MIBACT and included in the Italian calendar for the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage.
 
Exhibited for the first time, La charette (1925) by Marc CHAGALL, Tombeau d'un roi maure (1929) by Alberto SAVINIO, Composizione spaziale (1949) by Lucio FONTANA , together with selected works by Carlo LEVIYang PEI-MINGMario SCHIFANO and others by some of the most important 20th century Italian artists made it possible to offer a taste of some of the collection choices made between the 1950s and 1990s.

The exhibition opened with an event designed to emphasise the importance of languages accessible to the public, building a bridge between the art world and ordinary life. Milena Naldi, art historian, Giorgia Olivieri, journalist and expert on Bolognese culture, and Alice Zannoni, art critic and curator, author of the book  'L'arte contemporanea spiegata a mia nonna, ridere, piangere e capire' (Explaining contemporary art to my grandmother: laughing, crying and understanding), showed how the apparently difficult to understand language of art focuses on the individual and can be a tool for development, inclusion and dialogue. This is because 'art is bequeathed from the present to the future....and in this there is the moral obligation of transmissibility, there is an ethical value that marks the difference between the concept of heritage, which is consumed, and that of inheritance, which is carried forward'. (Alice Zannoni)

The exhibition project was enriched by CUBO App, a special multimedia application that allowed users to intuitively and autonomously expand the exhibition-related content – available from the 
Apple Store and Google Play​
