Pablo Atchugarry (b.1954), a Uruguayan of Italian origin, is one of the most acclaimed sculptors internationally, and for many years he has chosen Lombardy as his place of inspiration and production. So it’s natural that Milan should reward him with a large exhibition of his works from the last twenty years, after his personal exhibitions in Italy at the Palazzo Ducale in Genoa, as well as in Rome and Pietrasanta, all key places in historical and traditional sculpture, and more recently with exhibitions around the world in the Groeninge Museum in Bruges, in the modern city-state of Singapore in 2018, and in Geneva and Miami in 2020.

Well-known in Europe and America – or rather, the Americas – the Uruguayan artist chose Lecco and its mountains to create his work and make it known around the world: his Foundation, established in Miami, not only contributes to his fame, but stages temporary exhibitions to introduce people to the world of art, particularly the art of South America, in a spirit of solidarity that is truly exceptional.

The “modern” meaning of his sculpture, in the sense that could be attributed to the “tradition of the new”, perfectly embodies its international flavour that has rewarded him with a slow, growing and inexorable success.
