FMR’s first act, Number One: the beginning of a great new season. Celebrated Italian author Dacia Maraini, the champion of new South American literature Héctor Abad Faciolince and Nobel laureate Orhan Pamuk are but three of the signatures that guarantee, as of this first issue, the continuation of the FMR tradition: literary texts of extraordinary stature combined with wonderful photographs to show a new and curious look at Art.
From Nobel laureate Orhan Pamuk telling us about the extraordinary design of a museum, which we see in Massimo Listri’s photographs, where all the objects recall a lost love, to Danish painter Vilhelm Hammershøi’s soft, minimalist interiors populated with enigmatic female figures; from the extravagant sculptures of the Scuola Grande di San Rocco, the work of Francesco Pianta, who carves wood with an extravagant and refined technique, to the private and little-known portrait of the great archaeologist Winckelmann, a lofty scholar, but with very human habits and weaknesses.
In the columns, Dacia Maraini and Héctor Abad Faciolince write; also discussed are futurist Aeropainting and auctions of great women painters, still subject to fluctuating valuations.
