03/23/2024 – 07/21/2024

From 23 March to 21 July 2024 the exhibition halls of the Palazzo dei Diamanti in Ferrara will host for the first time the works of Escher, a brilliant and visionary artist, who has always been loved by mathematicians and rediscovered by the general public in relatively recent times.


Born in 1898 in Leeuwarden in Holland, Maurits Cornelis Escher won the appreciation of millions of visitors thanks to his extraordinary ability to transport them inside imaginative and apparently impossible worlds.


Countless themes and suggestions converge in the creations of the great Dutch master, who lived in Italy between the two wars: from geometric theorems to mathematical intuitions, from philosophical reflections to the paradoxes of logic.


His unmistakable works, which have also influenced the world of design and advertising, are a challenge to perception and represent a unicum in the panorama of art history of all times.


The exhibition is organised by Arthemisia, Fondazione Ferrara Arte and Servizio Musei d'Arte of the Municipality of Ferrara, in collaboration with the M. C. Escher Foundation and Maurits and is curated by Federico Giudiceandrea, one of the most important experts on the artist, and Mark Veldhuysen, President of the M. C. Escher Foundation.
