Aeterna is the title of the exhibition which takes place with the curatorship and the artistic direction of Gianni Dunil. The purpose is to emphasize the potential of art to maintain the persistence of the idea aesthetic beyond any fashion, taste or age, leaving discernible signs of a common track laid by Piero della Francesca to Pollock, from Cimabue to Morandi , by the Lombards to D’Orazi, or from ancient times to today. Daniele Radini Tedeschi and Achille Bonito Oliva inaugurate the Triennale.
The exhibition catalogue, as in every edition, will gather critical passages of important authors including an essay by Vittorio Sgarbi, supervisor at the conference of the Triennale Preview 2017, held at the University of Rome La Sapienza University on April 28, 2016 .
