After L'Amore Vince Tutto, Eros Capitolino and Per Sempre, Copelli continues exploring the subject of love through Amanti.

The project faces and expands on the relationship between the mythological lovers Mars and Venus.
During the Renaissance, the Neoplatonic philosophical tradition identified the love of the two Roman gods as the power to resolve the negative forces into a cycle of balance and harmony. Countering this philosophical tradition, Copelli transforms the gallery space into an imaginary museum. An hypnotical exhibit of mural paintings, masks, fragments of sculptures and armours tells tales of a lost world, inhabited by allegorical figures. The exhibition introduces the viewer into an out-of-time atmosphere, where one can enter, dive into, and freely establish connections.

On this occasion Gianni Politi is the guest of La Vetrina, with the work El Pistolero. per "Non Pitturare Invano".
