The exhibition was also subsequently shared with Palazzo Comunale di Pistoia.

Sixteen artists presented their different styles and colours of life. It’s their personal contribution to how they interpret what is underlying the fundamental elements in life: beauty, wonder and mystery, history, spirituality, feelings and love. Their repertoire includes many genres, from ink painting to oil, from sculpture to photography.

Traditional Chinese art with its precious history, fascinating landscapes and ancient characters, slowly evolves. Now modern and contemporary art is much loved and appreciated by the Taiwanese people. And it is an art of the spiritual, outside the tangible formal dimension, it goes beyond things, it passes through time and space. In art emotions are given, an immense beauty opens up to our eyes and truths emerge behind appearances.

The exhibition “Art and culture of Taiwan” is the third edition organized together with the Municipality of Bologna in the Sala d ‘Ercole of Palazzo d’Accursio, will be subsequently transferred to the Palazzo Comunale di Pistoia.
