The Arcana – The Lion of the New Horizons exhibition will be a very important event for the area aimed at sharing and disseminating the artistic production of one of the best and best known Italian sculptors at an international level. The exhibition is an intense journey between ancient and modern. The symbology at the base of the creative idea of the artist who, through it, tells thoughts and stories that come from more remote times, but which bind us to the present in an infinite embrace. This is art, remaining imprinted with one’s ideas over time, a continuous search for beauty that is expressed through the artist’s creative canons.
Andrea’s sculptural works are destined to become eternal, as eternal is the thought that merges together with these hands, albeit young, but wise, able to tell and transmit to us all the power, beauty and strength of one of the oldest materials worked by man, stone. Andrea da Montefeltro has the ability to be able to shape stone through a dream that is the result of his immense talent that led him to make him known all over the world. The sensitivity that distinguishes him in each of his works, his ability to capture beauty through his thoughts, his enormous passion and love for what he does, make every
event related to him a special moment that leaves a tangible mark on the world of art and culture. A mysterious, symbolic and fascinating exhibition which in all its stages has captured the attention of the media and a large public. Works with an ancient scent that progress through our time and leave a profound innovative trace that will last forever. The sculptures of Andrea da Montefeltro become bearers of light on the horizon of art.
