WILDT Soul and shapes
The increasing interest shown by great collectors and his presence at important exhibitions held by the biggest museums in the world clearly indicate a rediscovery of Adolfo Wildt (Milan 1868–1931), who is finally and legitimately reconsidered one of the most important European sculptors in the 20th century. Despite all the awards and fame he reached when alive – he was granted, without any contest but for his merits, the Chair of Sculpture at the prestigious Accademia di Brera in Milan, and was appointed Accademico d’Italia, thus entering the exclusive club of national glorious figures – critics’ appreciation remained controversial.
Alien to avant-gardes and non-conformist, able to merge classic and anti-classical art, Wildt is as unique as he is everything, with no place, in every moment. The past is no longer the linear flow of passed events, but rather a new time, decadence and modernity at once, a huge land of crystallized meanings, Egypt and Greece, Gothic and Renaissance, coexisting and made available for use and open to the risk of interpretation.
The exhibition is hosted by the Fondazione della Cassa dei Risparmi di Forlì together with the Municipality of Forlì and the Musei San Domenico.
