Mario Nanni always considers light as an architectural element to be molded, a material entity with which the play of shadows gives shape to the abstract. The artist's first love is the natural light, but soon begins to develop unusual and artificial compositional languages. Along the exhibition the light becomes word to explain the journey of a man through his interest in the light of his studies and his experiments.
