An ex­hi­bi­tion by Ric­cardo Dal­isi that fo­cuses on feel­ings and poor ma­te­ri­als

Where Naples Coast & Islands - - WHERE NOW -

‘Trav­el­ling with the Star’, but, above all, with Ric­cardo Dal­isi, who, un­til the end of Jan­uary will show­case his works at an ex­hi­bi­tion that fo­cuses on feel­ings, poor ma­te­ri­als and the na­tiv­ity scene. Ap­prox­i­mately 40 sculp­tural works in cop­per, wrought, welded and painted iron - 5 of which are life-sized - are ex­hib­ited along­side 40 draw­ings of var­i­ous sizes. Ric­cardo Dal­isi en­light­ens us about the sym­bolic mean­ing of his ex­hi­bi­tion.“The splen­dour of a star, the dim light of dawn, the power of day­break, the prom­ise of a new life, the ten­der­ness of a child, the del­i­cate fragility of a bird, the docile strength of an ox or a don­key, the simple de­vo­tion in­her­ent in the sweet sound of a bag­pipe. Re­liv­ing the na­tiv­ity scene arouses emo­tions: this is the mean­ing of Christ­mas, the fes­tiv­ity of fes­tiv­i­ties. My wise men in cop­per, my tin stars, my mu­si­cians crafted in wrought, welded or coloured iron come to­gether in my na­tiv­ity scene, in the hope that they will arouse new, heart­felt emo­tions.” Un­til 11 Jan­uary 2016. Ad­mis­sion free Re­nais­sance Naples Ho­tel Mediter­ra­neo. Via Ponte di Tap­pia, 25, Naples www.mediter­ra­ne­on­apoli.com
