A path that, between screens and totems, allows you to deepen the extraordinary creative activity of what is universally recognized as the greatest artist of all time.
“It is an ‘impossible’ exhibition, which digitally reproduces all the provocative power of Vincent Van Gogh and his art that makes him the genius we know – explains the creator and promoter Salvatore Lacagnina -. The choice to present art through the use of advanced multimedia technologies makes it possible to amplify its communicative power, using different transmission channels at the same time, the visual of images, the auditory of sounds and music, the sensory of objects and reconstructed environments.
The visitor – underlines Lacagnina – is immersed in an enveloping path, transported on a virtual journey to discover the painter, the artist, the man Van Gogh. We relive the life and works of the great Dutch master in a different way, through images and multimedia paths able to catalyze the attention of visitors who are enchanted by the visual performance of Van Gogh’s works ”.
The exhibition is by thematic areas that group the works according to the period of elaboration, referring to the places where Van Gogh was and to particular events in his life, with specific themes particularly loved by the artist. Life in two parts, the first paintings (1881-83), Nuenen (1883-86); Paris (1886-88); Arles (1888-89); Saint-Rémy (1889-90); Auvers-sur-Oise (1890); and then the flowers; the letters; the watercolors; the graphics; the drawings; the portraits; the famous sunflowers; The Roulin family; self-portraits.

Vincent van Gogh, a painter beloved by the general public, marked a decisive turning point along the way of artists or of humanity towards the relevance of color, the extrapolation of nature inherent in reality, the importance of the materiality of the brushstroke in the work as a whole. of art.
In this exhibition space, high-resolution images will be projected with the use of 23 high-definition video projectors with such brightness as to make the viewer lose the perception of reality and immerse him inside the work.
