Mimmo Paladino and the Warrior of Capestrano: the New Room


Mimmo Paladino, one of Italy’s best-known artists, has created a dialogue with
the Warrior of Capestrano (sixthcentury BC), an outstanding masterpiece of Italic
sculpture.This artistic encounter takes shape in the wake of a pioneering
experiment without precedent in Italy: the great contemporary artist has
designed the new permanent room in which the Warrior is exhibited, at the
Museo Archeologico Nazionale d’Abruzzo-Villa Frigerj, in Chieti. According to
Gabriele Simongini, who together with Andrea Pessina has edited the book that
describes the artist’s intervention,Paladino has given the Warrior “a new home, a
room suspended in a timeless dimension, as well as creating a whole new work of art,
made up of architectural spaces,graffito signs and ad hoc lighting.” And the dialogue
does not stop here: the sculpture of the new Guerriero by Paladino is proof of that.
