at Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa
Project curated by Stefano Pezzato
Event organised with the support of the Friends of the Scuola Normale Superiore
The sixth meeting of the prologue to the inaugural exhibition The End of the World, launched one month before the Grand Opening. An important framework of collaborations which presents some emblematic works from the collection in prestigious institutional centres of the region.
On Tuesday the 18th of October 2016 at 1 p.m., Giulio Paolini’s work Panorama (1996-1997) will go on display at the Palazzo della Carovana in Pisa, the historical site of the Scuola Normale Superiore. The work joined the collection for the exhibition which marked the tenth anniversary of activity of the Pecci Centre in 1998, and was subsequently acquired outright by the Friends of the Museo Pecci.
The Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa was officially founded in 1810 by Napoleonic decree, on the model of the École Normale Supérieure in Paris. In two centuries of existence the Normale renewed its identity (in subsequent epochs) to win the test of time, becoming, today, one of the most beautiful training and research centres in Europe. The school has the institutional aim of promoting the development of culture, education and research in the areas of both science and humanities, exploring the interconnections. For this purpose it pursues the highest level of education, both university and postgraduate, as well as permanent and recurrent development, primarily emphasising the relationship between training and research and assisting the conveyance of acquired skills to both public administration and the professional world. The School maintains its headquarters in the historic Palazzo della Carovana, a building of medieval origins redesigned in the second half of the 16th century by Giorgio Vasari, resulting in its present form. It is one of the symbolic places of the city of Pisa from an historical, artistic and urban point of view.
