Three-quarter, front, profile. Realistic or visionary. In the history of art, the depiction of the face shows the alternating of phases: from realism to idealization, from the stylization of the features to their expressionistic deformation. Visionary, extravagant, the portraits on display look at us with the eyes of their authors. The silent and alienated faces of Agostino Goldani, the winking Mona Lisa by Davide Cicolani, Franca Settembrini’s piercing-eyes girls, the primary and minimal faces of Shaul Knaz, pensive and solitary the faces of Mauro Gottardo.
