Other views on cancer research and treatment

Exhibition of works created by young Brera artists with the coordination of the Onlus PROMETEO.

“Lievi e precisi come determinati voli. Sguardi altri sulla ricerca e la cura dei tumori”

An encounter between two apparently distant worlds, that of artists, made of pure creativity, and that of doctors, in which method and rigor guide every step.

“Lievi e precisi come determinati voli. Sguardi altri sulla ricerca e la cura dei tumori” was born from an agreement, in 2017, between the Accademia di Brera and the National Cancer Institute. A workshop, which involved eight young young artists students of the Academy led by Prof. Stefano Pizzi and Cosmo Laera, the young trainees of the team of prof. Vincenzo Mazzaferro, the PROMETEO volunteers, the patients and the hospital staff of the Institute, proved to be an important exchange of knowledge and experience for a unique experiment which, bringing together artistic research and scientific research, wanted to provide the public with a new approach to the topic of tumors.

An exhibition, organized and curated by the PROMETEO Association in March 2019, at the Event Space of Palazzo Pirelli in Milan and a publication created thanks to the precious contribution of the CARIPLO Foundation, were the crowning glory and testimony of the project's success. The catalog collects all the pictorial and photographic works made in this long and intense period. The proceeds from the sale of the catalog that collects all the works on display and some commentary texts will be entirely donated to the PROMETEO onlus Association for its support activities for patients in the Hepato-gastro-pancreatic and Liver Transplant Surgery Department of the National Institute of the Tumors of Milan..

The opening event took place in the presence of the numerous guests, the students of the Specialization Course in painting and photography of the Accademia di Brera and the young doctors of the Cancer Institute who collaborated in the joint workshop between the two institutions to the realization of the works. During the event, a meeting was held moderated by Sherrie Bhoori, Executive Member of the PROMETEO Association to illustrate the project and its aims.

Introducing the exhibition as organizers and curators, Giuse Dellavesa, President of the PROMETEO Association, Stefano Pizzi, Chair of Painting at the Accademia di Brera, Cosmo Laera, Photography Course, Accademia di Brera and Vincenzo Mazzaferro, University of Milan Studies and Surgery Foundation IRCCS National Cancer Institute.
