“An exhibition designed with red Pompeian walls sliced with perspective windows that resume the ones on the paintings. Across them the view can “travel” through the next room playing a game between reality and illusion, a principal theme on the artwork of De Chirico” (Francesca Bonazzoli – Corriere della Sera)
“The choice of this specific exhibition language is not only a challenge trying to tell a photographic archive in a contemporary way, it is also deliberately a project that seeks to tell the story of AEM view from a bridge that looks to the future, directly connected to all the advanced projects of A2A.” (LUCE n. 5/2010)
“Models sat on design-classic chairs by Austrian designers, in front of paintings by Austrian Hermann Nitsch. That’s what you call a theme.” (Matthew Schneier – The New York Times)
