Inauguration Saturday May 21 at 5pm in front of the Bego Museum.
The artist, who has made "recovery" his creative philosophy, has been chosen to give continuity to the research project of artists who work almost exclusively with recovered materials.
Using materials found in nature, objects thrown into the environment, considered exhausted or "now dead", and industrial metal scraps, Brunivo Buttarelli creates sculptural works that tell of our planet's infancy, such as bone fragments, outcrops, and the carcasses of ancient and imaginary animals that, through the passages imposed by time, come down to us.
As a sculptor, Brunivo Buttarelli seems to have described through his works the fossil landscape of Castelfiorentino's remote past, a land that once belonged to the seabed. The fossils of those depths are as much a part of this land as the vineyards and olive trees. Here in the ancient Valdelsa sea, sharks and whales swam in the Pliocene age (5 million years ago).
