The Body and the Soul, oil on canvas, 1990

The themes presented in the exhibition relate to different periods, along thirty years, and to their experiences, which are not only pictorial, but existential and psychological. They also have roots immersed in the ancient myths that Mazzucconi has spontaneously re-lived in life and work. Given the large number of artist's works (around 400), the exhibition is a selection limited to about twenty, while the video integrates it with the images of other works. The exhibition is organized in several rooms dedicated to the following themes:
