A tribute to Gaetano Pompa: an artist who has left an unforgettable mark on the Maremma region.

A symbolic figure of the 1960s and 1970s, always against the trends of much of his generation, from the avant-garde of abstraction to figuration, Gaetano Pompa is probably the artist who most deeply embodied the imagery of the Maremma.

A versatile and cultured artist, his fantastic universe conceals a literary and symbolist research that interweaves historical figures, mythological creatures and rural landscapes, reflecting on the dilemmas and enigmas of our time.

The unbreakable bond between Gaetano Pompa and the Maremma, which he had known since childhood and never abandoned, allowed him to conceive the landscape as an expression of European history and culture, offering a profound insight into the psychological, existential and autobiographical issues of modern humanity.

In collaboration with Gaetano Pompa Archive, for one day only, a selection of 25 works, mostly in bronze and created between the end of the 1960s and the early 1990s, will be ‘hidden’ in the evocative woodland of the Diaccialone agricultural estate in Pescia Fiorentina. Anthropomorphic figures and fantastic creatures will appear to visitors as extraordinary epiphanies, hidden among the trees and shrubs of the Mediterranean poplar forest.

One of Gaetano Pompa’s most famous works is the altarpiece for the church of San Biagio in Ansedonia, created in 1976, a tangible testimony of the deep bond between the artist and the Maremma.
