EREDITÀ is a captivating solo exhibition by artist Massimiliano Pelletti, featuring contemporary sculptures carved from exotic stones sourced from different parts of the world that are inspired by antique models. Pelletti deliberately incorporates visible flaws, cracks, and fissures inherent in the material into his sculptures, inviting viewers to contemplate mankind's relationship with the past and question the idealisation of past cultures. Through his meticulous craftsmanship and thought-provoking compositions, Pelletti unveils a nuanced exploration of time, imperfection, and our collective fascination with bygone eras.

Artist ( Description ): 

Pelletti is an Italian stone carver who lives and works in Pietrasanta, Italy. He initially began his journey as a sculptor in his family’s artisan workshop and was inspired and taught by his grandfather, Mario, a sculptor in his own right and who, in his time, worked on the infamous restoration of Michelangelo’s Pietà in the Vatican. Many of Massimiliano’s sculptures are inspired by the collection of plaster classical models inherited from his grandfather’s Glyptotheque and this exhibition Eredità or in English, Heritage, intends to explore the artist's culture, inspiration and experience as a classical direct stone carver.
