Roberto Demarchi in an engaging
conversation presents a new and fascinating
iconological reading of “The Tempest” by Giorgione
accompanied by a personal interpretation
in abstract painting.


The art historian and the painter stand in front of this mysterious painting “with the intent to bring back to the centre what has been relegated to the margin, that is the painting meant as thought, téchne and fate”.

To do it, it’s necessary that a “platonic androgyne holds deep inside the science of the historian and the drama of the painter’s poiéin”.
Giorgione, his world, his city, his most personal art are read and interpreted (with respect and devotion) by an artist of the second millenium, almost six centuries later.

Roberto DemanrchiRoberto Demarchi was born in Turin in 1951. He is a painter, an architect and an art Historian. His artistic path started very early. Since his first exhibition in 1969 he has purposely chosen some rare moments of public visibility far from the usual critics’ scenes and art market paths although his works appear in several private collections in Italy and throughout the world.
In March 2001 the cycle «Perì Physeos» was finalised and in 2003 Crocetti Editore published a monograph that contains the views of the Italian and European leading scholars.
Since then the painter’s research has been focused also on the representation of sacred themes taken from the Old and New Testament.
The cycles «Genesis» and «Genesis of the world and Genesis of Art» both curated by Antonio Paolucci make part of this research.
In 2011 Claudio Strinati presented, at the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana in Milan, the triptych «St. Matthew’s Passion», an abstract meditation on the work of J. S. Bach and the painting exhibition «Abstract Gospels » in Rome and Turin.
