Ligabue was a true "outsider," not only in how we might categorize his art, but in the unfortunate facts of his life. All but ostracized by human society because of mental, physical, and emotional "deficiencies" brought on by childhood diseases, neglect and poverty, Ligabue lived isolated in his hut, where he sculpted his animals from the river clay. Later, given oils and canvas, he painted his fantastic, yet realistic, animals, insects, birds, castles, and landscapes, as well as his many haunted self-portraits. In May 1996,a major celebration of Ligabue's life and art was held in his home town of Gualtieri, featuring an exhibition of his work, films and panel discussions

Una grande monografia su uno dei più geniali e originali artisti del Novecento italiano.0Oltre settanta opere - tra dipinti, sculture, disegni e incisioni - ripercorrono la tormentata opera di Antonio Ligabue e confermano, al di là delle fuorvianti definizioni di naïf o di artista segnato dalla follia, il fascino di questo "espressionista tragico" di valore europeo, nella cui opera, che fonde esasperazione visionaria e gusto decorativo, spira il vento del moderno.0Di Ligabue è ormai nota la triste odissea esistenziale che segnò profondamente il suo lavoro. Espulso dalla Svizzera per la sua vita turbolenta, Antonio Ligabue arriva nell'agosto 1919 a Gualtieri; l'impatto con il nuovo ambiente si rivela da subito triste e doloroso. I primi dipinti di Ligabue (nei quali traspare il suo grande interesse per i musei di scienze naturali e per gli animali in genere) risalgono alla fine degli anni Venti; sono gli anni in cui Ligabue incontra a Gualtieri Marino Mazzacurati. La difficile e tormentata vita di Ligabue, segnata da ostilità e incomprensioni, e da ricoveri all'Istituto Psichiatrico San Lazzaro di Reggio Emilia e al Ricovero di mendicità di Gualtieri, è tutta dedicata, fino alla morte, alla pittura e alla scultura, nonostante le diffuse derisioni e i mancati riconoscimenti.0La monografia presenta i contributi di Sandro Parmiggiani, Sergio Negri, Giuseppe Amadei, Simona Bartolena, Luciano Manicardi e Sergio Terzi (Nerone), oltre al catalogo delle opere (suddiviso in Dipinti; Disegni; Incisioni; Sculture), alla biografia dell'artista, all'elenco delle esposizioni e alla bibliografia.00Exhibition: Castel Nuovo ? Maschio Angioino, Cappella Palatina, Naples, Italy (11.10.2017- 28.01.2018)
