The catalogue of the exhibition by Roberto Fanari is held at the Studio Museo Francesco Messina, Milan. The core feature of the exhibition is The Rediscovered Sky, a painting on canvas, 12 metres long and 6 metres wide, on two panels composed of 36 individual canvases and placed at a height of 12 metres. The link between art and nature, and between art and architecture is evident in creating the use of architectural elements, from the crypt on the ground floor, and the light sources like the enormous window of the apse. Aware of the perfect dialogue between the work and the surrounding space, Fanari created an installation that integrates perfectly within the exhibition space. Other works shown on the ground floor are closely connected to the painted ceilings through their affinity or contrast. The artist has often focused on the subject of the sky and clouds inspired by the work of Constable, achieving an effect that evokes the dreamlike and visionary aspects of our imaginary.
