The doors are opened for the photography exhibit, “StillClose”, by Elvio Pierattini, until saturday, 21 January. The Renaissance building, Palazzo Madama, will be hosting the photographer from Lazio for the first time.

The show, curated by Marianna Porro, is promoted by the town Union of Chianti Fiorentino and organized by the Pro Loco of San Donato in Poggio.



Pierattini was born in Formia, Latina, in 1983. He graduated with a degree in historic/artistic, musical, cinematographic and theatrical treasures at the University of Siena and obtained a diploma at the experimental photography center of Rome.

He started with photography and video art when he was very young, concentrating on figurative art. He has collaborated with many art galleries and exhibition spaces including Palazzo delle Papesse-Center for contemporary art-and the “Centro Culture Contemporanee Cort…e dei Miracoli”.

His creative approach follows the purity of form, while at the same time celebrating carnality and sensuality in the relationship between his subjects.

There is a strong need for a composition in which Eros and spirituality combine. His lines are inspired by the classical and the formalism of beauty.

His faces are not revealed, as if describing the universality of their identity. The show will remain open until March 19.

Hours:  Friday 4 PM to 7 PM; Saturday 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM and 4 PM to 7 PM; Sunday 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM and 4 PM to 7 PM.
