Di terra e di fuoco (Made of terracotta and fire)

Saint Sebastian by Andrea Riccio

Ten years after the important monographic exhibition at the Castello del Buonconsiglio dedicated to the great Renaissance sculptor Andrea Briosco, known as "Il Riccio" ("curly haired") for his hair, the museum presents a new exhibition, to admire an unprecedented sculpture by this famous artist (born in Trento in 1470), depicting Saint Sebastian.

The exhibition, open from 20 October 2018 to 24 February 2019, showcases the terracotta Saint that was made between the end of the fifteenth and the beginning of the sixteenth century; the tension in his face, the modelling of his hair, the precise anatomy of his body highlight Riccio's most typical art style, who practised at first goldsmithing, but soon became a famous modeller, bronze sculptor, and so a true protagonist of the Renaissance sculpture.
