On the occasion of the celebrations for the centenary of the birth of Primo Levi, a significant selection of wire works created by the great writer and intellectual is exhibited for the first time in Italia: objects with a strong intimate and domestic character, to be displayed on the shelves of the studio of the writer or to be given away to friends.
As such, therefore, they are treated in the exhibition: not as works of art, but as products of Levi’s imagination and manual dexterity: animals are the first source of inspiration, but also fantastic and human creatures.
A rich and complex figure emerges, in which his education as a chemist, a solid knowledge of classical literature, the passion for languages, etymologies and word games, irony and love, humour, coexist, with a broad and lively curiosity for the most recent artistic expressions, a lively and aware interest in mathematics, physics, natural sciences.
