A silent presence of wolves, sculptures dressed in intense colors (austerus indeed). Enigmatic figures that evoke the lives and dreams of magnificence of those who, in the Roman era, built a sumptuous villa, the powerful remains of which we can admire today in the archaeological area known as the Grotte di Catullo.

The installation is part of Back to PIETRA&Co., a mosaic of works forming an exhibition route from Punta GrĂ² to the Grotte di Catullo, which will be open until October. These works emerged from the encounter between the creativity of the artists and the poetry of Sirmione: contaminations of public spaces and everyday places that come into contact with the public in unexpected and surprising ways.

“Bringing art back to the public and the public back to art without losing intensity and the ability to experiment,” said Lillo Marciano, the creator of the event, to whom this presence is dedicated.

The exhibition is organized by the Consorzio Marmisti Bresciani in collaboration with the Municipality of Sirmione and the Ministry of Cultural Heritage – Regional Directorate of Museums of Lombardy.
