FELICE PEDRETTI EXHIBITION

Invitation to attend the Exhibition of works by Felice Pedretti

Comunicato stampa

Il 2 novembre prossimo si inaugura a Palazzo Valentini(Via IV novembre 119/A, Sala Egon Furstenberg, ore 18,00) la mostra di un pittore singolare: Felice Pedretti, nato in un sobborgo di Città del Capo, dove comincia ben presto a disegnare e a dipingere, ma a sedici anni condotto dai genitori a Roma, dove ha la fortuna di conoscere Luigi Ferrero, un artista che lavora per il Vaticano e che lo avvia allo studio dell’arte antica e del restauro. Ma allo studio dei maestri antichi aggiunge lo studio di alcuni maestri moderni, fra cui Giorgio de Chirico, per il quale concepisce una vera propria passione, senza rinunciare però a conquistarsi un proprio stile. Egli può essere definito un neometafisico. E’ presentato in catalogo da Costanzo Costantini, il critico del “Messaggero” che ha dedicato al fondatore della metafisica e al precursore del surrealismo due libri: Il pittore glorioso, che apparve presso Sugarco nel I978, quando il pictor optimus era ancora vivo, e IL Monomaco – colui che combatte da solo, pubblicato dalla Galleria Ulisse di Roma. La mostra, che resterà aperta sino all’11 novembre 2011, si avvale anche dei contributi critici della professoressa Maria Teresa Benedetti e del professore Roberto Maria Siena.

Opening on November 2, at Palazzo Valentini in Rome, an exhibition of a unusual painter, Felice Pedretti, who was born in a suburb of Cape Town, where he began in early age to draw and paint. At age sixteen he moved with his parents to Rome, where he had the fortune to meet Luigi Ferrero, an Artist who worked for the Vatican and that initiated him to the study of ancient art and restoration. To the study of old masters he added some modern masters, including Giorgio de Chirico, for whom he conceived a true passion, though without renouncing to achieve his own style. He may be considered a neo-metaphysical Artist. He is presented in the catalog by Costanzo Costantini, the famous Art critic and journalist that dedicated to the founder of metaphysics and the precursor of surrealism two books: The glorious painter, that appeared at Sugarco in I978, while the “pictor optimus” was still alive, and The Monomachus – one who fights alone; published by Ulysses Gallery in Rome. Professor Maria Teresa Benedetti and Professor Roberto Maria Siena, two other historian critics, will also add their critical contributions.

The exhibition will remain open until the 11th of November 2011.
