Careof, Sky Italia and Museo del Novecento present Lo scherzo by Riccardo Giacconi, winner of ArteVisione 2016, a project in support of Italian talent.

The work will be presented to the public for the first time from 11th-16th October 2016 in the Sala Fontana of the Museo del Novecento. The exhibition, curated by Chiara Agnello and Iolanda Ratti, will also include a talk between the artist and the singer-songwriter Alberto Camerini scheduled for the Twelfth Giornata del Contemporaneo on 15th October 2016 at 6.30 pm.

The theme of the 2016 Call for Proposals - focused on technology as a factor of deep transformation of the individual and of society as a whole - Riccardo Giacconi responds with a video portrait of Alberto Camerini. Through a series of conversations and a montage of unpublished archive materials, Giacconi lets emerge a story full of details, variations and quotations that, with great skill, relives with the singer-songwriter, in a continuous reflection between his public a more private than now. Evoking some of the career steps of Camerini, who defines himself as "cyberclown, harlequin, puppet", returns the peculiarity of a style that intersects pop, punk, folk and electronics, inspired on one side by the Commedia dell'Arte and the figure of Giambattista Tiepolo , and on the other to technological innovations and the beginnings of computer technology.
