In the year of his death, ArtVerona homages Hidetoshi Nagasawa, the great Japanese artist who chose to live and work in Italy. An itinerary through some of Verona’s more significant locations, created by Adriana Polveroni in dialogue with Ryoma Nagasawa and with the assistance of the Academy of Fine Arts, of the Directorate of the Civic Museums of Verona, of the Superintendency for Archaeology, Fine Arts and Landscape of the Provinces of Verona, Rovigo and Vicenza and the extraordinary participation of Mart, Contemporary and Modern Art Museum of Trento and Rovereto.

Hidetoshi Nagasawa was a great artist, capable, like few others, of intervening in space with potency and lightness at the same time, defying the laws of gravity with apparently impossible equilibria, capable of blending the geometrical power of his installations with the natural beauty of the landscape. He was capable of dialoguing wisely with the past, as witnessed by the many Italian historical sites that have experienced his artistic action. His powerful, energetic work merges fittingly with several qualitative characteristics of Verona: the vigour of his installations and the creation of severe and yet virtuous environments dialogue well with the ancient and solemn beauty of the city where several of Nagasawa’s installations are perfectly inserted into some outdoor and some indoor locations.
