On the occasion of Arte Fiera 2017, Andrea Benetti's exhibition entitled "inMovimento" was set up in January. In the beautiful location of the former Ospedale degli Innocenti complex, about forty works have been exhibited, expressing a contemporary pop iconography, taking as a cue from the various means of transport, which surround our existence. The Bolognese artist, creator of Neo-Cave Art, enjoys imagining which subjects he would choose for his cave paintings, an imaginary caveman, catapulted into the contemporary world.
