THE MANIFESTO OF NEO CAVE ART

arte_pittura_contemporaneaBIOGRAPHY - Born in 1964, Andrea Benetti created and drew up the "Manifesto of Neo Cave Art" presented at the 53rd Venice Biennale, in the pavilion entitled "Nature and Dreams", located at the Ca 'Foscari University. Conceptually, the Manifesto is inspired by the genesis of art. In his works, Andrea Benetti cites, transfigures, plays with and reinvents concepts and forms of Cave painting, creating an ideal bridge between the genesis of art and its contemporaneity. He has collaborated and continues to collaborate with various Italian and foreign universities, (including the Johns Hopkins University, the University of Bologna, Ferrara, Roma Tre, Lecce, Bergamo, Bari) on the realization of innovative projects.  The aforementioned universities have implemented research studies and programming based on his art. Benetti's works are presented in world wide collections . In addition to the museums of contemporary art in Italy and abroad and prestigious private collections, including the United Nations, his works are showcased in the Quirinale (seat of the President of the Italian Republic), in the Italian Parliament, in the Vatican, as well as in various Embassies. For this reason, he was received at the Quirinale (seat of the President of the Italian Republic), in the Chamber of Deputies (Italian Parliament) and in the Vatican, where he enjoyed the honor of meeting with Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis. Dozens of university professors and notable art critics have covered Benetti's art and have collaborated in the Italian painter’s creations. In 2020, Benetti was awarded the 49th “Nettuno d'Oro” Award, the longest-running and most prestigious annual artistic award in the city of Bologna.
