The significant meeting between Le Murate. Progetti Arte Contemporanea in Florence and Paolo Masi produced a site-specific work dedicated by this Florentine artist to this unique place with a long and articulated history.
The exhibition project is born from a direct comparision between the artist, environments and the history of the Murate city complex, in the sign of a new production. The entire district is reread by Masi as a place of memory linked to isolation, voluntary as in a convent, or forced, as in a prison.
The exhibited works involve the entire monumental complex, from the interior spaces of Le Murate. Progetti Arte Contemporanea to public spaces such as the façade, the fountain in Madonna della Neve square or the interior of the semi-octagon. The relationship with the Murate cultural distrect makes this project a great public work that reflects on the history of this particular part of the city
