Giuseppe Penone's "Luce e ombra", which has just been installed in the reception hall of the Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts, was unveiled to the press on Friday 26 April 2019. Cesla Amarelle, State Councillor, Alice Pauli, donor, Giuseppe Penone, artist and Bernard Fibicher, MCBA Director, were present. This sculpture in bronze, granite and gold is 14.5 metres high.

Giuseppe Penone (born in 1947 in Garessio, lives and works in Turin) is associated with the Arte povera movement, which wants art to return to its essentials by reflecting on the relationship between nature and culture. Penone's work is characterized both by the vitality of an interrogation about man and nature and by the beauty of its forms and materials.

In 2016 the MCBA presented its first exhibition, Giuseppe Penone. Crossed views, in close collaboration with the artist.
