"Io, Villa Adriana" was born from the reflection on the relationship between himself and the landscape carried out by Luca Vitone over the years. This volume explores the link that the artist has created between the external envelope that contains us, the place, and his own interiority. From this point of view, in fact, Vitone's art seems to start from an individual experience, linked to his personal history, which ends up declining into works, images and thoughts aimed at involving the user in an active and dynamic way. With the gait of an explorer, Vitone crosses the places and, thanks to his works, he tells them by expanding their imagery both in a physical and geographical sense, and in the symbolic and historical-social one, thus unifying the exploratory practice to the more analytical and ironic. The exhibition project, to which this volume is linked, was designed specifically by the artist for the focus dedicated to him: on display at Villa Adriana some works related to the theme of the landscape while at MAXXI a series of large-format canvases painted with dust from the residence of the emperor Hadrian in Tivoli. .
