The Poldi Pezzoli Museum presents: The Shape of Time

13/05/2021 - 27/09/2021

From May 13 to September 27, 2021, the Poldi Pezzoli Museum presents The Shape of Time, an exhibition dedicated to man's relationship with time, from antiquity to the threshold of the modern age, which relates iconography to the technological advancement in its measurement, through the observation angles of science, literature and art. The exhibition, curated by Lavinia Galli, curator of the Poldi Pezzoli Museum, with an installation project by Migliore+Servetto Architects, presents about thirty works, including clocks, sculptures, manuscripts and paintings; the fulcrum of the exhibition is a series of precious Italian nocturnal clocks of the seventeenth century, invented by the Campani brothers for Pope Alexander VII Chigi, with dials painted with allegories of the time by famous Baroque artists. The exhibition is divided into three sections: The Measurement of Time and Space, The Images of Time and Nottetempo.
