From 17th July to 22nd September Palazzo Reale presents an anthology that celebrates sixty-five years of research by Valerio Adami, a well-known european painter - he lived between France and Italy - recognized as a valid interlocutor by all contemporary philosophers.

His paintings, almost always large format, give a great visual impact, therefore the artist has sometimes been defined as "pop". Behind straightforward images is hidden a more complex narrative: the Adami’s artworks are rich in sophisticated visual metaphors, and they include philosophical, literary and mythological concepts, representing the evolution of ideas through the European and Western thought.

The exhibition Valerio Adami Painter of Ideas is realized in collaboration with Valerio Adami Archive.
