Piranesi in Ghent is an exhibition, a catalogue and a
symposium. It is also a telling story in the recent scholarship and recurring ‘fashionable’ re-discoveries of
Piranesi’s work. It is a funny story, a serious cultural
enterprise that begins, like all good love stories, by
chance. But there’s more here: scholarly passion,
intellectual curiosity, design and experimentations:
as well as reproductions, plates and debates, and a
lot of challenging hypotheses and development possibilities.
This is indeed a very Piranesian story and, as
in Piranesi’s work, here the less visibly obvious is
worthy of the greatest attention, because it reveals
more, much more indeed, than what appears at first.
