Franco Fontana's photographic work will be on display at the Palazzo Franchetti, Venice, from 15th February, 2014

From 15th February, 2014, at the Palazzo Franchetti, Venice, there will be the first major retrospective devoted to Franco Fontana. On display will be over 130 photographs that tell the story of his long international career in photography. FRANCO FONTANA. FULL COLOUR, promoted by the Veneto Institute of Sciences, Letters and Arts is arranged and produced by Denis Curti from Civita Tre Venezie. Franco Fontana's visual language is characterized by bright colours, so vibrant as to appear unreal, rhythmic compositions of overlapping lines and planes, patterns built with light. He was among the first in Italy to align himself with conviction and determination with colour, and makes it the protagonist, not as a means but as a message, not accidental, but as an actor and attracted by the material surface of the city, portions of walls, layers of history, details of life sculpted by light. Fontana arranges the landscape as if he were a portrait painter. Divided into several thematic sections, the exhibition suggests the landscapes of the early (60s) through various researches dedicated to urban landscapes, swimming pools and the sea. The long career of Franco Fontana is studded with worldwide accolades, awards and honours, more than four hundred exhibitions in which his photographs have been exhibited, and published in more than forty volumes. Opening Hours Monday - Sunday from 10.00 to 19.00 Closed Tuesdays Information and reservations Tel.+39 041 8620761
