ARNALDO POMODORO's "ENTERING THE LABYRINTH"
via Solari 35, Milano

The environment – ca. 170 sqm – was begun in 1995 for an exhibition in the Marconi Gallery in Milan and later found its permanent location in the underground spaces of the ex Riva Calzoni building at 35 via Solari, previously the Foundation’s Museum venue and now Fendi’s Milanese headquarters. Opened at the end of 2011, Entering the Labyrinth not only marks one of the most important stages of Arnaldo Pomodoro’s artistic career, but is also one of Milan’s most secret and fascinating places.

The Magic of the Labyrinth
The discovery of a place that evokes ancient times, a work of a lifetime, a magically striking environment that came to life over 20 years and was inspired by the Gilgamesh Epic, the first epic poem of human’s history carved on a clay tablet with Sumerian characters.
by Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro

Space and Time

The labyrinth is the symbol connected to the idea of the “lost and found”... It’s entrance is permitted to small groups so they can explore and find the signs left by the artist during time...signs that evoke, re-propose and reveal the space in which they reside. While waiting for the group to emerge from the labyrinth the rest of the class will work on a map.
