Landing on its third stage, in the halls of the San Giorgio Castle Museum in La Spezia, is Andrea Benetti’s exhibition project, after being presented at the Chamber of Deputies in April 2015 (VR60768 – anthropomorphic figures) and at the University of Ferrara, in May and June 2016 (preHISTORIA CONTEMPORANEA). The current display at the Museum of the Castle of San Giorgio consists of an exhibition by Andrea Benetti, entitled “Omaggio alla pittura Rupestre” curated by Marzia Ratti and inspired by the origins of cave painting. An integral part is the projection of a video art work, made on the same theme. Part of the canvases on display was made by Andrea Benetti using Paleolithic pigments found in the excavations of Grotta di Fumane (VR). Pigments that had already been used by prehistoric man, to paint five stones, also found in the archaeological excavation.
