Sculptures by Alessandro Reggioli

What's new at La Nouvelle Galerie Massillon?

Scupltures by the renown Italian artist Alessandro Reggioli. During one of his many solo exhibitions his monumental Safety Heart Armour was the centrepiece in the Roman Amphitheatre in Archaeological Museum of Fiesole, Italy. It's uncommon to have a solo exhibition in a museum and even more unusual to put a 700 kilo heart of bronze on a Roman stage. Read about it here: Museo Archeological di Fiesole

Alessandro works in series. The hearts began in Florence during a show that I hosted in my gallery a walk down from the Bargello Museum. It's an honour to work with him again, in my gallery in Hyères. This is a bronze piece the, Mercurio's Winged Foot.

The Winged feet come in two sizes. There is also a baby foot. Alessandro has had a thing for wings. He did an entire series about airplanes. It's called Fly. See his auction results on Artnet

To finish his sculptures, he built his own raku oven. Here are the raku Winged Mercurio Feet.


My tips for March travellers

What to visit in Hyères

Currently there is an exhibition at villa Noailles, Jacques Rougerie, Habiter avec la mer . But definitely take a guided tour of the historical town. There's over 1000 years of history to absorb. You can book at the tourism office.

Where to ice cream in Hyères

Ice Mama. It's on rue Massillon. Try the black sesame, or the banana caramel.

Where to shop in Hyères

This town has lovely local shops and an art walk. There are no international franchises except for McDonalds. These days it's rare to find a town with only local shops. The most interesting shops are on the Parcours des Arts.
