The moving works of Emilio Vedova in the rotating museum of Renzo PianoThe star of the architectural world Renzo Piano has designed the worlds first museum in movement, dedicated to his friend, the artist Emile Vedova. Installed in the newly-restored Magazzino del Sale n. 1, the Museo Vedova utilises new technology to allow the canvasses to fly through the air, revealing new dimensions to the works for the spectator through the play of light and shade. This idea originated from the artist himself, who died in 2006.
For Vedova art should not be a static form: he had almost an obssession with movement, and Piano adheres to this vision and will, using mechanical arms and tracks to make the works rotate in front of the viewers allowing them to absorb each single nuance. The new museum will act as both an exhibition, with free entrance throughout June, and a study centre and workshop.
Free entry until 30 June 2009Visiting hours 11:00 - 4:30 p.m. Tuesday - Sunday
