Mauro Davoli's exhibition "Nature Vive", sponsored by the Emilia Romagna Region and set up in the headquarters of the Legislative Assembly in Viale Aldo Moro in Bologna, opens on Thursday 11 May.

The exhibition, curated by Giovanni Gazzaneo, created in collaboration with Galleria Forni, will be open from Monday to Friday, 9 am to 6 pm, until 24 May.

Fruit and flowers that come to life thanks to skilful plays of light, flowers whose petals assert themselves to the visitor's eye thanks to gentle veins that release vitality and humanity.

The artist from Parma - with his camera - tells curious and unexpected aspects of the nature that accompanies us, especially in this spring season which has always been dedicated to the rebirth of nature after the winter period. Davoli's photographs portray fruit, vegetables and flowers that seem to really come alive under the visitor's gaze thanks above all to the artist's skilful play of light.

Mauro Davoli, born in Fornovo Taro in 1955, began taking photographs while studying Architecture at the Faculty of Engineering in Bologna. Since 1981 he has dedicated himself completely to photography by opening a studio in Fornovo Taro. He remains linked to the world of design, architecture and art by collaborating over the years with the Milanese design studio "Alchimia" and with magazines such as "Decoration Internationale", "Domus", "Casa Vogue", "Abitare", "AD ", "Materia", "Aion", "Casabella". He has collaborated with advertising studios, favoring reportage dedicated to advertising as well as still-life, producing images for Aperol, Limonta Moquettes, Fiorucci, Pizzarotti, Parmalat and many companies in the Parma area. He has published photographs in monographs dedicated to artists with numerous publishing houses including Electa, Allemandi, Fabbri Editori, Franco Maria Ricci. He has created black and white images for a series of guide books dedicated to the castles of Parma and carried out personal research with images related to architecture and art, exhibiting in personal and various group exhibitions.
