Italo Calvino“A classic is a book that has never finished saying what he has to say”
(Italo Calvino)

The House of Corto Maltese continues its program of exhibitions, for the occasion hosts the journey: “Around the invisibles cities” of two Venetian artists:  Franco Fabris and Alberto Valese: the first for the drawings, and the second for the micro sculptures .

- Invisible Cities, or the visible Venice.
“Marco Polo tells Kublai Khan had visited a city where you stand sixty silver domes, it’s like seeing it in front of me, and I draw it.




I keep reading the words of Calvin, and I find myself drawing other cities, not only with domes, but also with canals, bridges, terraces, triple lancet windows, pilings and bell towers.
It is easy to understand. All these cities are always Venice.
The Great Khan himself seems to know only a city of his vast empire, and describes it to Marco.
It’s always Venice.”
(Franco Fabris)

On show until November 27th
at La Casa di Corto Maltese
