Mayor Fabio Passera and counselor of cultural events Alessandro Fazio explain: "As widely advertised, our Museum will celebrate its 20th anniversary in May 2018. For a whole year, we’ll be busy organizing a number of events in order to properly celebrate, and the first is this exhibition. We are very happy to host Sandro Bardelli’s elegant, refined works. This artist was born in Varese, but has lived and worked in Casalzuigno (Valcuvia) for many years now.
We can’t stress enough the importance of this exhibit that features a wide collection of never-displayed-before works that stem from his never ending, in-depth studies on shapes and art’s main ingredients. Let’s not forget the area dedicated to Gianpietro Pugni’s artistic mosaics. His passion for this kind of art originated in the streets of Cadero, one of the many small towns that are part of Maccagno, that is today the capital of this fascinating form of art”.

The never-before-exhibited works by Bardelli are divided by theme: “Water,” “Earth,” “Poetry,” “Orient,” “Abstract,” “Rice paper”.
Clara Castaldo explains, “Bardelli’s very peculiar body of work suggests a deeper connection with reality and adds to Art’s palette elements that go beyond traditional painting. These are, in fact, entirely new thematic cycles based on multi-material techniques that are flexible and innovative. Paintings become almost three-dimensional, while weft and color turn into an existentialistic search for reality’s essence. Bardelli’s personal path takes him to other continents’ art, but at the same time he pursues innovative potentialities that give his paintings a sculpture-like solidity. The figures in his paintings that are inspired by oriental art move through a parallel and equally apt creative dimension, landing and laying on a surface of lines and ridges that remind the observer of a frescoed wall.”
