This is a lavishly illustrated look at the latest exhibition from the influential, but often overlooked Italian artist Luigi Ontani. An innovative and refined interpreter of mythological, historical, and literary allegories, Luigi Ontani is one of the most influential yet often overlooked artists of his generation. This lavishly illustrated new volume documents Ontani's latest exhibition, CapoDIOMonte, a series of 'interventions' in which he placed his own works, from the 1970s onwards - including a series of polychrome ceramic plates inspired by personalities from the worlds of literature and art such as Joseph Beuys, Gino De Dominicis, and Alberto Moravia - among the masterpieces and ancient art collections of the Museo di Capodimonte in Naples, creating a fantastical journey that reinterprets the history and memory of the museum's original pieces.
