Nulla dies sine linea


Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore
Largo Agostino Gemelli, 1, 20123 Milano MI

Nulla dies sine linea

The theme chosen highlights the university space as the place where study, research and faith intertwine and coexist, forming the foundations of the community of Milan’s Catholic University, which this year celebrates the hundredth anniversary of its foundation. In fact, the title Nulla dies sine linea, from Pliny’s Naturalis Historia, refers to the painter Apelles, who achieved perfection only through constant daily practice. In the same way, with constancy in study, perseverance in research and daily application to the good, the Catholic University trains people capable of critical thinking.

This exhibition is intended to be first and foremost an act of knowledge, where the man who knows is the one who sees and does not stop searching. The students who curated the exhibition asked the fifteen contemporary artists involved to draw a line between the past and the future of the University, applying their creative flair to the theme of daily practice as a founding value of the institution.

The artists involved in the project are: Matteo Attruia, Gabriella Benedini, Filippo Berta, Giuseppe Buffoli, Letizia Cariello, Bruna Esposito, Francesca Ferreri, Armida Gandini, Marco Grasso, Caterina Morigi, Barbara Nahmad, Luca Pozzi, Alice Schivardi, Ivan Tresoldi and William Xerra.
