Magazzino Italian Art is proud to present a short film titled Nivola: Sandscapes, by Domenico Palma, which provides a behind-the-scenes look into the exhibition Nivola: Sandscapes, currently on view at Magazzino Italian Art until January 10, 2022. The film features interviews with the curator of the show and Magazzino Italian Art's 2020-21 Scholar-in-Residence Teresa Kittler and Magazzino's Director Vittorio Calabrese.

The short film shows a behind-the-scenes look into the installation of the exhibition Nivola: Sandscapes, which explores the artist’s pioneering process of sandcast sculpting. Featuring a selection of approximately 50 works from the early 1950s to the 1970s, including sandcast reliefs, carved concrete sculptures, and rarely seen maquettes of his most important architectural commissions, this focused presentation will examine the artistic process, range of influences, and notable impact that Nivola had on modern urban architecture and design.
