MAXXI dedicates to Maurizio Nannucci, one of the most important names in Italian contemporary art from the 1960s to the present time, a major exhibition entitled Where to Start From, curated by Bartolomeo Pietromarchi.
The exhibition explores, with works both early and recent, the importance and the central position of Nannucci’s artistic research. Two new installations were made for this occasion, including the sound installation Sound Samples and More Than Meets the Eye, a large-scale work for MAXXI’s facade which, thanks to Amici del MAXXI, will join the museum collection.

Since the 1960s, Maurizio Nannucci, a point of reference for many generations of artists, architects, musicians, critics and curators, has examined the relationship between art, language, and image. His research, which has always been characterized by the dialogue between the various disciplines, explores the relationship between light, color, sound and both real and imagined space, which becomes particularly evident in his large neon writings. Nannucci’s work is conceptual – it is an exploration between culture and society, with a close connection between architecture and urban landscape – whose language restores a symbolic and spatial value to the single words.

// Il MAXXI dedica a Maurizio Nannucci, tra i maggiori protagonisti dell’arte contemporanea italiana dagli anni Sessanta a oggi, una grande mostra dal titolo Where to start from, a cura di Bartolomeo Pietromarchi.
La mostra esplora lavori di matrice storica e più recenti, che interagiscono tra loro attraverso un percorso di luci, colori, forme, scrittura e suoni. Due nuovi lavori sono stati realizzati per questa esposizione tra cui l’installazione sonora interattiva Sound Samples e More than meets the eye una grande opera per la facciata del MAXXI che, grazie agli Amici del MAXXI, entrerà a far parte della collezione del museo.

Dagli anni Sessanta, Maurizio Nannucci, punto di riferimento per diverse generazioni di artisti, architetti, musicisti, critici e curatori, esamina il rapporto tra arte, linguaggio e immagine. La sua ricerca, da sempre caratterizzata dal dialogo tra discipline diverse, esplora la relazione tra luce, colore, suono e spazio reale e immaginato, che diventa particolarmente evidente nelle sue grandi scritte al neon. Quello di Nannucci è un lavoro concettuale – un’indagine tra cultura e società con un forte legame tra architettura e paesaggio urbano – il cui linguaggio restituisce alle singole parole un valore simbolico e spaziale.
