He realized one of the iconic works of this Italian summer 2020, entitled Spazio Amato. We are talkin about Massimo Uberti, the artist from Brescia whose main working medium is light.

He graduated at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera. In the early ‘90s, he was a member of the Lazzaro Palazzi artist’s group in Milan. He got a lot of appreciations in Italy and abroad including, Piazza dei Mercanti in 2007, 5th edition Camera of Commerce prize, Milan, and in 2008, Tendente Infinito in the exhibition Dreams of the possible city, Fondazione Stelline, Milan.

Light is an indispensable tool in the hands of an artist and a material on a par with others in architecture.
Directly connected to our perception of the world, light — which has always been used to enhance surfaces and volumes — since the dawn of artificial lighting has played a more independent role in formal and structural processes.

Spazio Amato, his latest light installation inaugurated as part of Hypermaremma — a contemporary event conceived to activate the lands of the Tuscan Maremma — is now on display and can be visited until September 15 from sunset until late night in the Terre di Sacra, which houses the WWF Oasis of Lake Burano in Capalbio.
