Metaformismo Action 2020: Fondazione Giulia Sillato



Giulia Sillato Foundation, established in 2017, deals only with high-profile Italian Contemporary Art, as this confirms itself throughout architecture, sculpture and painting.


Chaired by art historian Giulia Sillato, who was a student of Ferdinando Bologna, himself a collaborator of Roberto Longhi, the Foundation decides and organises its activity within the constant ascertaining of historicity in situations and characters of the present-day world.


Metaformismo© (2010), is a new interpretation of non-figurative artistic expressions from the twentieth century, mainly recognizable in Abstract Art, of which infinite interpretative possibilities have been identified simply resorting to sight to distinguish its various forms (František Kupka epitomised them in his Amorpha, while Wassily Kandinsky created them in large numbers called Compositions, sometimes Improvisations).


Copyright 2020, is the highly selected and very determined team that spreads the most meanings around the world hidden form. This is exactly who the pictorial works of the Italian masters invited to Rijeka 2020 European, Capital of Culture, deal with - discovering them is more hidden and unknown than the "form" in painting. The following artist works will be showcased: Giuseppe Tedeschi

Emilio Belotti

Jole Caleffi

Giulio Cavanna

Sebastjan Centi Rosetta D’Alessandro

Enzo Devastato

Massimo Fumanti

Cristiana Grandolfo

Osvalda Pucci

Tiberio Rilli Pietra Stone

“Learn the rules like an expert, so you can break them like an artist”, Pablo Picasso said, thus setting precise terms for the genesis of modern art. This is the principle inspiring Metaformismo©.
