Art and good food in an evocative setting: the Sina Centurion Palace hosts works by Bruno Catalano, Ludovico De Luigi, Tony Cragg, among others.
The stimulus of the ongoing Art Biennale seeded great art exhibitions all around town. An interesting collection of art pieces has been set up right here at Sina Centurion Palace, which is now part of the Art Mile going from the Accademia to Punta della Dogana. The collection includes sculpture pieces such as Margot by Bruno Catalano, a French-Moroccan artist who evolved from clay to bronze pieces and creates ever-larger frames in what are amazing technical accomplishments. San Marco 2 is a piece by Ludovico De Luigi, famous for his large-scale bronze horses inspired by those that decorate St. Mark’s Basilica. Also on show is art by Alia Ali, Nadia Cascini, and Gavin Rain, in cooperation with Bugno Art Gallery, Galleria Ravagnan, and 193 Gallery.
Other pieces to mention are Andrea Roggi’s sculptures La Sorgente del nostro Amore, Le Radici, and Il Futuro del Mondo, placed in the inner courtyard next to Catalano’s Hubert, while Tony Cragg’s Runner finds its place by the Canal. Also, paintings by Attasit Pokpong, a rising star in the modern Thai art scene.
