Cecco Bonanotte’s History: No.4

When Bonanotte was 31 years old, he won a competition and made a work titled Sculpture Polimaterial for the Michelangelo Celebrations. After the celebrations, this work was displayed in the Michelangelo birthhouse-museum at Caprese Michelangelo.

The title, Sculpture Polimaterial, means “a sculpture made of multiple materials“ and this work consists of three kinds of substances that are stone, copper and bronze.

The attempt to bring out the best of the characteristics from materials by Bonanotte was already made when he was 31 years old.

This work expresses all the opposite things in the natural world such as man and woman, matter and spirit and so on in a structure like a theater. Using different elements, he aims to recognize the substances existing in this world anew.

This is a wonderful work that makes us feel the existence of the earth, human and nature in our bones.
