Exhibition of Sacred Works

The Exhibition

The project consisted of the realisation of ten Madonnas by Dr. Alan Pascuzzi. They were exhibited in the Palazzo della Cancelleria in Rome. The exhibition was in collaboration with the cultural association, Tota Pulchra Es, Maria under the guidance of the Monsignor Jean-Marie Gervais. The Vatican, through Monsignor Jean-Marie Gervais, expressed their interest in the innovative works and proposed to Dr. Pascuzzi the opportunity to exhibit them in a one-week exhibit open to the city of Rome, the Vatican community and to the Pope.

Tota Pulchra Es, Maria

The exhibition of original sculptures of the Madonna is based on the medieval hymn Tota Pulchra Es, Maria. The ten Madonnas showed each of the attributes of Mary – prudent, merciful, intercessor as included in the medieval hymn. Every work will propose a new image of Mary and Jesus faithful to the reality of the love between mother and child but also alluding to a universal love and the divine.
