On the occasion of the celebrations for the Remembrance Day 2020, until February 23, the Palazzo Vecchio Museum will welcome in the Hall of Lilies installation The Western or Western Wall by Fabio Mauri, a project Museo Novecento OFF conceived and curated by the artistic director of the Museo Novecento Sergio Recovered.

Fabio Mauri (Rome 1926 - 2009), protagonist of the cycle Only at the Museo Novecento (from 24 January to 30 April 2020) is one of the leading exponents of the neo-avant-garde of the second half of the twentieth century, he has long dealt with the paths of ideologies and the theme of memory in his creative parable, wondering about the role of "evil" in human history . "If there was no pain - said Mauri - language would have ceased to exist for some time".

Il ! at 13.00 in the Sala dei Gigli in Palazzo Vecchio the inauguration of the installation will take place in the presence of the councilors of the Municipality of Florence Tommaso Sacchi, Sara Funaro and Alessandro Martini and the artistic director of the Museo Novecento Sergio Risaliti. Following a short talk by the professor Giacomo Marramao, philosopher linked to the Roman artist by a long friendship, entitled The horror of the shoah in art di Fabio Mauri.

The installation The Western or Western Wall it is a four-meter wall, made up of a pile of suitcases and trunks stacked in an orderly way, of different sizes and materials (wood, leather, canvas). It was first presented by Mauri in 1993 at the XLV Venice Biennale. It was later installed in 2011 at the MAXXI in Rome and again in Venice at the 2013 Biennale. With a strong impact, it recalls the themes of exile, forced exodus, migration, restoring variety and complexity.

"There are works such as Guernica di Picasso or Klee's Angelus Novus - declares the artistic director of the Museo Novecento Sergio Risaliti - that more than any other artistic expression speak of terror and violence, the extermination of the innocent and the banality of evil, the monsters of Reason. To these I would add The Western or Western Wall by Fabio Mauri, who associates the tragedy of war and the Holocaust with the exodus and eradication. The suitcases, raised like a wall, become the monument to the memory and pain of all the victims of power and ideologies opposed to human rights and dignity ".

"The" Western or Western Wall ", as the residual wall of the Temple of Solomon is called in Jerusalem, is rebuilt here with suitcases - reads the text of the same Mauri which accompanies the installation since its first exhibition and which is therefore part of the work -. Attempt to represent that necessary wall of the ideal or intellectual faith, among all baggage in transit, forced to expatriate, or carry incinerated identities with it. It is a construction of dissimilar origins that stands on its own, with no other support than its obvious complexity. The soft, the hard, the cardboard, the leather are, in this wall, stones and people, a single self-supporting collage. Even in Auschwitz one of the most impressive documents builds him a pile of suitcases. Each, in the name and address written above, involves the certainty of the return ".

If on the one hand the wall is uniform and regular like a real wall, on the other it is disconnected and at variable volumes, recalling, according to the artist "the modern composition of transmigrations" which "Dictated by numerous causes are excessively enigmatic to be immediately composed and deciphered ". "In the ravines of the" Western or Western Wall ", the Israelites insert paper tickets with prayers: related to the soul, the affections, the bodies, how to live life on earth - he concluded Mauri in the text accompanying the installation. I simulated them in a single canvas roll. A sort of art prayer. The Wall is the place, say the Israelites, where God certainly listens: it is the place of value, therefore. A plant also grows there, a sign of a continuation of mixed existence that the mute and square stones or the empty and inert suitcases cannot prevent them either ”.
On January 27 for the Memorial Day, the Museo Novecento will be free admission throughout the day.
