Light in the dark

Domenico Pesenti

Mantova Museo Urbano Diffuso

Perhaps the most intense part of Domenico Pesenti's career best interprets the suggestions of Italian Divisionism. Far from the echoes of Impressionism, this artistic current preferred the contrasts between light and darkness, laying the foundations of the artistic revolution of the 20th century avant-gardes. In this great work, the subject is a mere pretext for a play of brightness and darkness. The dim light that we glimpse in the night of an Italian city appears like a beacon that does not illuminate, but simply touches the massive architectures, which almost seem to rest in a deep sleep.
