Titina Maselli: Titina Maselli
The Eduardo Secci Gallery is pleased to inaugurate Saturday, May 8th (4:00pm) a large retrospective of Titina Maselli (1924-2005), one of the most representative figures of the Italian art scene. The exhibition, curated by Alberto Fiz, launches a gallery program dedicated for the first time to an historical and critical review of the 1900s. It coincides with the project titled “Étoile. Titina Maselli, Salvatore Ferragamo and the myth of Greta Garbo” at the Museo Novecento in Florence.
The show analyzes the career of the famous artist from the first creations of the 1940s to the most recent works of the early 2000s. It is examined through a selection of fourteen works that summarize the extensive research of Titina Maselli, a unique personality of the Italian scene, who was able to independently explore the archetypes of modernity. As Alberto Fiz highlights, "although starting from the lesson of the historical avant-garde, in particular from futurism, the modernity of the Roman artist lies in her ability to investigate the dynamic flux that crosses things, creating an energy field in perpetual transformation".
