FutuRuins. The Body and the Stone

The exhibition follows a path through the centuries on the theme of the aesthetics of the ruins, a foundational concept in the imagination of Western civilization, a symbol of the coexistence of the past and the future in the same place. The journey is punctuated by the chronological sequence of real or imaginary memories of vestiges of every time, from the first mythologies of destruction by the work of divine wrath like the Tower of Babel or Sodom and Gomorra, to the "iconoclastic terrorism" of Palmyra, from ancient Egypt to Greek-Roman antiquity, from the wars of the 21st century to the ruins of the Twin Towers.
