Mortality with Vitali, Father and Son
Peter Greenaway, curator, designer
In 2017 Peter Greenaway was invited by the Vitali family to curate an exhibition with the paintings of Gianfranco Vitali at Casa del Menzoni in Milan.
The Mortality with Vitali, Father and Son exhibition is a reflection on the life and death issues in Giancarlo Vitali's paintings, compared with Alessandro Manzoni's life, work and events.
Not only curated Peter the works of Vitali, but he rubricated them and created theatrical environments where the paintings were shown.
In memory of this exhibition a unique catalog is made, under the direction of Greenaway himself.
