Flaminio Gualdoni, curator of the exhibition, writes in the catalog, "As the modeller ancient Annibali choose the clay, reaching in his game of pretending suggestion archaeological traces of the old color, again raccorciando the distance to the myth of a absolute beauty and smell of metaphysics ... The chosen because the earth is the matter available in all forms, storage of all memories. "The large terracotta sculptures, placed as to reconstruct an ancient temple, are unusual, desperately today , without emphasis and yet highly attractive and alluring in their quiet space. A sort of "monument to nothing" - so Annibali - no myths and no heroes; where gestures and gazes reveal the emptiness of the present and the distance impenetrable female figures of the pediment. In addition to sculptures, all unpublished, also 21 beautiful ink drawings and a raft of sketches and designs. The set up of architects Massimo Di Matteo Mauro Tarsetti, is divided so as to melt the hard daily work of sculpture with the solemnity of the finished works.
