The debut exhibition will showcase the works of Igor Mitoraj, Stefano Bombardieri, Pablo Atchugarry, Robert Indiana, Gustavo Velez, Helidon XhiXha and Jimenez Deredia, to name a few.
For most of these artists, Pietrasanta has played a significant role in the development of their artistic careers.
The new art gallery was born by three entrepreneurial women: Mara Firetti, Emanuela Venturini and Paola Marucci.
OBLONG Contemporary Gallery will showcase some of the most prolific and prominent artists’ works created in Pietrasanta, the Tuscan town in Italy famous for its marble and bronze workshops and where artists have gathered across centuries since the time of Michelangelo.
The two-month exhibition is open for free to the public from 15 October until 14 December 2019, Sunday - Saturday, 12pm to 10pm.
