Roman notebooks, the exhibition at the Museum of Rome in Trastevere. A’reduced format’ Rome is the one told in the original dialogue between the paintings of Diego Angeli and the polaroid photographs by Simona Filippini, two authors distant in context and linguistic form but united by the charm of the city. Among suggestions, glimpses and unusual “notes”, about 150 of their works meet in the exhibition “ROMAN NOTEBOOKS. Views by Diego Angeli. Visions of Simona Filippini ” , hosted at the Museum of Rome in Trastevere from 1 November to 23 February 2020 .
The Roman notebooks exhibition
The exhibition is promoted by Roma Capitale, Department of Cultural Growth – Capitoline Superintendence for Cultural Heritage. It is curated by Silvana Bonfili with the technical-scientific coordination of Roberta Perfetti and Silvia Telmon. Organization Zètema Progetto Cultura. Biobibliographic research by Francesca Lombardi. Curated by the Rome LOVE project, Chiara Capodici.
The exhibition “ROMAN NOTEBOOKS” was born in the perspective of enhancing the pictorial production of Diego Angeli and in particular of the series of 76 views of the Museum of Rome in Trastevere , a nucleus acquired in the years 1991/1992 for the museum collection (then called “Museum of Folklore “). The entire background is exhibited for the first time in this exhibition and, in view of a more current study of the relationship that has involved artists for centuries in the representation of the city, it is compared with as many photographic images taken with the polaroid by Simona Filippini , starting in 1993, in his Rome LOVE project on Rome and its suburbs.
