The exhibition “Savinio. Incanto e mito” at the Museo Nazionale Romano di Palazzo Altemps brings out, through some fundamental themes and insights, the distinction of a poetic that associated and combined ancient and modern, aesthetics and irony, memory and fantasy in a comprehensive outlook that is highly relevant today. Play, illusory and chimeric structures and plots, past civilisations and the auroral ages, the deconstruction of legendary and mythical tales, the kaleidoscopic images that break the visual balance in unexpected and dazzling compositions furnish the clues that lead us through the labyrinthine spaces of the Museum.
