Since 1964 in Cunardo (VA) a lively art life urged the ancient furnace, until creating the Galleria Alle Torri; They already made art ceramics by the furnace, but now aside the rooms, where pieces of pottery and porcelain were fired, Enzo Spadon was giving rise to open debates with the artists themselves, managing the exhibitions of their works: They were Fontana,Arp, Richter, Schneider, Morlotti and younger artists, still unknown, like Emilio Scanavino, Enrico Della Torre and others, who will help building the coming activity.
Founded in 1965 by Enzo Spadon.Its main trend is the abstract-lyrical one.
The Italian master artists, who can be seen as the basic opposite ends of a thread leading the gallery's activity, are Licini and Tancredi on one hand;Melotti and Fontana on the other one. Three young artists follow Enzo Spadon since the beginning: Gianni Madella, Mario Raciti and Valentino Vago. Still today they have permanent works at the Morone with many others who, meanwhile, have joined the gallery. Many exhibitions of all these artists were managed by Mr Spadon in Italy and abroad: some catalogues are still available by the Gallery. Spadon was very interested in the work by Fausto Melotti and he organized many exhibitions all over Italy and Europe since the early Seventies for fifteen years. In 1981 an amazingly fascinating comparison was the exhibition " iFausto Melotti-Joan Miro' ": Sound and music, as well as music and sounds, but as images could be seen. Many international artists exhibited at the Morone: Soto, Hartung, Schumacher, Chevalley, Noland, Ad Reinhardt, The New York School and others. At the beginning of the Eighties MATTIA MORENI'works began to be exhibited in some really astonishing one-man-shows, till today. The whole work by this artist may be known through a great deal of documentation available at the Gallery. A history of the gallery always updated is also available, moreover a thesis was written by Monica Fiori with Dr Andrea Del Guercio at Urbino Fine Arts Academy in 1985. A new point of view, on the contrary, can be found in the thesis by Rossana Tizzoni with Dr Accame at Brera, Fine Arts Academy in 1998.
The Nineties were dedicated to show in parallelismthe work of the masters and the research of young painters and sculptors: different languages could be observed, some authomatically transmittable and some, the latest, linked to a kind of communication not codified yet. Notwithstanding it is easy and amusingly enjoyable to find out the common matrices, from which all images were printed.
In 1995 Katia Spadon starts a new cycle of exhibitions: "Academies & Surroundings". In the third millenium we will only turn the page of a book, (quite like one for children, where only figures can be "read") that of contemporary art, whose following chapters need to be read by a different key, as well as the beginning has to be reviewed, and we shall do it: Inviting you to play with us
WE ARE HAPPY TO COMMUNICATE WE ARE LEAVING FREE (CYBER)SPACE FOR IMAGES, SO THAT ART CAN BE MORE COMFORTABLE BY YOU, TOO, OR CONTINUE THE VOYAGE WITH THE YOUNG ARTISTS OF ACADEMIES & SURROUNDINGS WITHOUT MAKING YOU MOVE.
