25.03.23 / 22.09.23  Complesso Monumentale di Sant'Anna dei Lombardi, Napoli

Virtus, Virtutis is the final act of a profound reflection by Matteo Fieno starting from the work created by Giorgio Vasari in Naples: in an ideal dialogue with the Arezzo master, the artist declines the Virtues illustrated on the vault of the Sacristy in a contemporary key. A reinterpretation that is not only formal but also communicative that has transformed the project into an experimental bridge between eras. At the invitation of ParteNeapolis, which manages the museum area and events of the Complex, Fieno creates twelve canvases (150x150 cm), painted with mixed media, to tell on social media the prolific expressive power of a central theme for the history of art, with its ethical and theological implications. The publication in 2022 on Sant'Anna dei Lombardi's Instagram profile is followed today by the exhibition Virtus, Virtutis which brings five of the contemporary virtues painted by Matteo Fieno to Vasari's places: Sapienza, Concordia, Bontà, Prodigalità e Abbondanza. From the digital world to the analog one and not vice versa, to try to find assonances and similarities with a vision of Virtue that is universal by nature and yet different in every era. 


02.10.21 / 17.10. 21 - Palazzo Burgos - Fondazione Fossano Musica, Fossano

Le Ballerine di Carta  unfolds in nine portraits that give life to a unique fairy tale, told through drawing. 
The dancers show themselves to us with charm and sensuality as they perform everyday actions, unwitting protagonists of these nine modern genre scenes. At the same time, however, through these gestures they express the 
their essence, stimulating in the viewer the desire to know their stories, their characters, their aspirations, 
their world: the path thus becomes a road to maturity, not without the fears that the latter brings 
physiologically with you. 


15.05.21 / 27.05.21 - Galleria d'arte Wikiarte, Bologna

Le Ragazze di Madame Odette 10 canvases of ballerinas inspired by Paris in the early '900, the period of the Belle Epoque; Like every protagonist of one of my paintings and a story, all these girls find themselves confronted with society, with contemporary times, inspiring reflections and deep feelings. 

QUEL PAZZO 2020 Declinato al femminile

24.10.20 /31.10.20 - Galleria d'arte This is Not Torino, Torino

22 canvases made during the lockdown period that tell the story of Quel pazzo 2020 declinato al femminile  where the joy and insecurity of my women are combined with nonconformism and determination to achieve a dream.


22.11.19 / 06.11.19 - Milano Art Gallery, Milano

42 canvases - 42 women - 42 stories with which we can identify, because we can all share the same feelings despite cultural, social, linguistic, gender or racial differences... In fact, the main goal of a man who paints women is to pose an uncomfortable question about the fact that the world is perhaps not divided into factions as we have been told, but should only be seen with different eyes.
