Mauro Staccioli

Mauro Staccioli Prospettiva Cielo

Permanent Installation

Hypermaremma continues its season by reinstalling a major work created in 2004 for the Bodio Center in Milan, exactly twenty years after its first exhibition.


On Saturday, July 6, we are pleased to present Mauro Staccioli. Untitled – Prospettiva Cielo, an imposing corten steel work created in 2004 by the master from Volterra (1937 – 2018). Thanks to the collaboration with the artist’s Archive, Il Ponte Gallery in Florence, and Niccoli Art Gallery in Parma, Hypermaremma brings this colossal architecture back to light, hosting it in the “Valle d’Oro” in the locality of Giardino (Capalbio), along the ideal axis that connects the sea to the hilly hinterland of Maremma.

Already honored by Hypermaremma in 2019 when, on the occasion of La Città Sommersa, a series of his Prismoids reconfigured the space of the Archaeological Park of the Ancient City of Cosa, Staccioli’s work now towers over one of the first hills we encounter coming from the sea. This architecture, consisting of three nine-meter-high pyramidal elements arranged in a circle equidistantly, stands out in the Maremma landscape with the sharpness of forms that distinguish Mauro Staccioli’s work, all centered on the idea of art as an element of social, political, and cultural signaling.

This political approach constitutes the fundamental character of Staccioli’s work, who made the dialogue with the territory his life’s research. The physicality of these pyramids – very “earthy” – is here overturned in a romantic key: the title indeed invites the viewer to rethink the space by shifting attention towards the sky, the perspective direction of the three corten tips.


Special thanks to the Mauro Staccioli Archive, Il Ponte Gallery, Niccoli Art Gallery, the d’Ascenzi family, and Maremmana Siderurgica.
