Fausto Melotti Exhibition at Villa Paloma

The Nouveau Musée National de Monaco (NMNM) presents an exhibition dedicated to the polymorphous and multi-faceted work of one of Italy’s greatest artists of the interwar and postwar periods. It brings together about 20 metallic sculptures and more than 70 ceramic pieces.

NMNM – Villa Paloma
56 boulevard du Jardin Exotique

“The recently opened exhibition centres on the elective affinities that, for a happy period, coupled Fausto Melotti’s genius with that of the visionary Gio Ponti in the molten lead of Domus type (roughly between 1948 and 1968). It is a combined effort by Marie-Claude Beaud, director of the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco, curators Eva Fabbris and Cristiano Raimondi, Baukuh and Valter Scelsi (exhibition design), the Fondazione Fausto Melotti and the publisher Domus. Arranged in one of the two NMNM premises – the elegant Villa Paloma overlooking the waters of the French Riviera – it has found a fitting venue.”
