The work of one of Italy's leading contemporary sculptors, Giuliano Vangi, fills the two pavilions of MACRO Testaccio. There are 30 sculptures and 30 drawings in the exhibition whose layout has been designed by architect Mario Botta.
Vangi's work addresses the relationships between mankind, nature and society, as well as themes of violence and abuse. The exhibition comprises mainly works from the past decade, including several pieces created specifically for the MACRO space.
Among the works on display are some exceptionally large bronzes, three massive granites, and a sculpture addressing the shocking but topical theme of decapitation.
Vangi's last solo show in Rome was at the Italo-Latin American Institute in 1978.
