Pinuccio Sciola's homage to Gaudi on display at Braida Copetti Park with his Sound Stones


On display through Sept. 30, 2021 at the Braida Copetti Sculpture Park are works from the past 15 years by Sardinian sculptor Pinuccio Sciola.

Through Sept. 30, 2021, the Braida Copetti Sculpture Park in Leproso, in the province of Udine, is hosting works from the last 15 years by Sardinian sculptor Pinuccio Sciola. Sounds, Stones and Architecture. Pinuccio Sciola in the Braida Copetti, this is the title of the exhibition, presents to the public six monoliths “resonant with archaic and poetic calls,” The Seeds of Peace, which are part of a large installation held in 2008 in the Lower Square of the Basilica of St. Francis in Assisi; and again, an extended City of Sound, formed by hundreds of small limestone elements that are composed in infinite combinations; The Endless Columns, or the artist’s personal homage to Gaudi: imposing vertical elements composed of tubes that rise up to form a metallic forest. Thanks to the association with the Sciola Foundation, the Braida Copetti collects a very valuable production. After the Sardinian artist’s hometown of San Sperate in the province of Cagliari, the Sculpture Park on the outskirts of Udine is the public space that can be visited with the most important number of Sciola’s artistic production.

The exhibition thus intends to be a compendium of the Sardinian sculptor’s production over the past fifteen years. The sculptures in the middle of the Braida return to where the artist wanted them to be, that is, in Nature, among plants and flowers. His Pietre Sonore have an intrinsic voice: the stone used by Sciola, always local Sardinian stone, has a different “voice”: basalt, lava stone, fossilized magma, produces a somber sound, while white limestone, which contains in itself the memory of the water in which it is formed, sends back all vibrations.

The event is also an opportunity to see the new arrangement of the Park and the new sculptures that have become part of the permanent collection in recent months.
