_dsc9475

For the 90th anniversary of Arnaldo Pomodoro, Milano has dedicated an anthological exhibition to the old master  – whose sculpture Sphere Within Sphere stands in front of the UN building in Manhattan – that involves 7 major sites, including three squares and four shows.  About 30 sculptures, created from 1955 to date,  have been collected in the picturesque Sala delle Cariatidi at the Royal Palace of Milano, the main exhibit.

Just outside the Palace, for the first time, The Pietrarubbia Group, a work that underwent a long progression,  faces the Cathedral for the first time.
