ANDREA BENETTI

La pittura Neorupestre

Andrea Benetti was born in Bologna in 1964. He is a painter, photographer and designer. In 2006, he drew up the Manifesto of Neo-Cave Art, presented in 2009 at the 53rd Venice Biennale, at the Ca' Foscari University. The Manifesto is inspired by the birth of art, by the cave painting of Prehistory. Andrea Benetti's artistic poetics transfigures, quotes, reinvents and plays with ideas and forms of cave painting, creating an imaginary bridge, between contemporaneity and the origin of art. For over ten years, the Bolognese artist has been carrying out projects in collaboration with various Italian and foreign universities, including Johns Hopkins University, the universities of Bologna, Ferrara, Bari, Roma Tre, Lecce and Bergamo. Over the years, some universities have included Andrea Benetti's Neo-Cave Art in the research program. His works have been acquired by museums and various institutional collections around the world, including that of the United Nations, the Quirinale (seat of the Presidency of the Italian Republic), the Italian Chamber of Deputies, the Vatican and some Italian Embassies around the world. In the last decade, Andrea Benetti has been received at the Quirinale, the Chamber of Deputies and the Vatican. He met Pope Benedict XVI in 2012 and Pope Francis in 2014. Many university professors and important art critics wrote about his painting, actively participating in the projects conceived by the Emilian artist. For many years the entry Andrea Benetti has been present in many encyclopedias, including the Treccani (the most important Italian encyclopedia), the WikiArt encyclopedia (the most important online art encyclopedia) and is present on Wikipedia, translated into thirty languages. In 2020, Andrea Benetti was awarded the 49th “Nettuno d'Oro” prize, the longest-running and most prestigious artistic prize in the city of Bologna.

BIOGRAPHY OF ANDREA BENETTI

Born in 1964, Andrea Benetti created and drew up the "Manifesto of Neo Cave Art" presented at the 53rd Venice Biennale, in the pavilion called "Nature and Dreams", located at the Ca 'Foscari University. Conceptually, the Manifesto is inspired by the genesis of art. In his works, Andrea Benetti cites, transfigures, plays, reinvents concepts and forms of Cave painting, creating an ideal bridge between the genesis of art and its contemporaneity. He has collaborated and still collaborates to the realization of projects with various Italian and foreign universities, including the Johns Hopkins University, the University of Bologna, Ferrara, Roma Tre, Lecce, Bergamo, Bari. These universities have carried out research on his art. Benetti's works are present in collections all over the world. In addition to the museums of contemporary art in Italy and abroad and prestigious private collections, including the United Nations, his works are present in the Quirinale (seat of the President of the Italian Republic), in the Italian Parliament, in the Vatican, in various Embassies. For this reason, he was received at the Quirinale (seat of the President of the Italian Republic), in the Chamber of Deputies (Italian Parliament) and in the Vatican, where he met Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis. There are dozens of university professors and important art critics who have written about Benetti's art and have participated in the projects that the Italian painter has created.
