[:en]Adrian Paci, protagonist of the personal exhibition "Di queste luci si servirà la notte", returns to Florence to present the catalog of his exhibition (underway in Florence until 11 February 2018 at Museo Novecento and Le Murate. satellite of Montelupo Fiorentino and Pelago) Tuesday 19 December at 5:30 pm at Le Murate.

The exhibition - which sees water at the center as a metaphor for movement, flow, but also action and reaction - is promoted and organized by Mus.e in the context of the Riva Project, directed by Valentina Gensini and realized thanks to the partnership and contribution of the Sensi Contemporanei project within the framework program agreement between the Tuscany Region, Mibact Cinema General Management and Territorial Cohesion Agency. In the four seats of the exhibition a corpus of articulated works is exhibited that sees in the center the themes of identity and flow, gutted with intensity and poetry. Tracing personal stories and recalling the facts and transformations of recent history, Paci transcends personal experience and addresses migration and mobility as an ontological condition, which is very current in a historical moment in which the very concepts of home and identity (cultural , political and social) are continually recalled and questioned. Existence is interpreted as a continuous search, a perennial movement, and water becomes a metaphor for the idea of ​​flow. Adrian Paci (Scutari, 1969) is among the best known artists on the international artistic scene. Within his works (paintings, installations, videos, photographs) he investigates the human condition always in transit and the complexity of the social, political and cultural dynamics of our present.
