The multi-media exhibition ‘Touch Nature’ presents the works of Austrian and Italian artists of recent years. They formulate actions of resistance and elaborate strategies that encourage a radical change of perspective, as well as visions full of hope for a reconnection of man to nature.

The exhibition intercepts the ‘ecological’ trend that art has been manifesting for some time and that the Covid-19 pandemic, with the obvious dramatic change in our lives, has made even more urgent. “Nature,” adds Adriana Rispoli, “is no longer raw material, medium or mirror, but, as a new generation of artists from every latitude testifies, a primary need manifested in the need to get closer to it, to seek a dutiful balance, to reread its propulsive force, making itself the spokesman of its power and above all of its fragility.
