Maria Lai’s first centenary

Today we celebrate Maria Lai‘s first centenary. Although she left us in 2013, through her works she lives on. On this very occasion, the MAXXI Museum (Rome), as part of her retrospective, Tenendo per mano il sole, will host a public event  “Giornata Studio” focusing on the complex and fascinating career of the artist through the words of critics and intellectuals.

Man needs to put together the visible and the invisible so he elaborates fairy tales, myths, legends, parties, songs, art
