The exhibition VALENTINO ZEICHEN AL BORGHETTO FLAMINIO. Per una Casa della Poesia, curated by Paolo Marcoaldi and Marco Pietrosanto, presents the results of the seminar of the Ph.D. in Architecture – Theories and Design La casa del Poeta. In memoria di Valentino Zeichen, coordinated by Orazio Carpenzano.
The idea of preserving the memory of the poet, through the designation of his Roman residence in a place dedicated to poetry, starts from the daughter Marta Manca Zeichen who, together with a group of Roman intellectuals, over all Franco Purini, is carrying on the initiative of which this exhibition is an important piece. The initiative was relaunched in the university by the Sapienza Faculty of Architecture, through the Departments DiAP and DSDRA, at the last Venice Art Biennale, during a study day dedicated to the Poet, in which Anna Rita Chierici and Francesco Siciliano represented a fragment of the play by Valentino Zeichen Apocalisse nell’arte.
The house of the poet was presented through the projects of Fabio Balducci, Alessandro Brunelli, Livio Carriero, Giovanni Rocco Cellini, Lelio Di Loreto, Pasquale Loiudice, Pietro Zampetti. The seminar coordinated by Carpenzano was attended by Professors Ippolito, Giovannelli, Partenope, Romano, Salvo, Scatena and the director of the House of Literatures Maria Ida Gaeta.
An important part of the exhibition is a visual story of the house reinterpreted through photographs by Dino Ignani and the selection of collages by Valentino Zeichen, curated by Donatella Scatena and Marta Manca Zeichen. During the exhibition Anna Rita Chierici read some poems by Zeichen.
