Italian art world was struck by the news that the curator of the national pavilion at the next Venice Biennale, will be known politician, a television debater and art critic Vittorio Sgarbi (Vittorio Sgarbi), who has repeatedly declared his aversion to modern art. According Sgarbi, he struggles with "art mafia", which always exposes the same artists. He himself is a specialist in Renaissance and contemporary works, apparently, prefers to still lifes, landscapes and seascapes, which he is actively traded on television even as the Deputy Minister for Culture. This high office Sgarbi held in 2001-2002. Now he directs the new acquisitions in the Roman Museum of Art XXI century (MAXXI).

Political career Sgarbi has evolved very rapidly. He often changed his party affiliation: a Communist, a socialist, and conservative. In 2004 he founded his own "Beauty Party", who called for a ban on construction of new buildings in Italian cities. In 2008, Sgarbi became mayor of the Sicilian town of Salemi. It can often be seen on Italian television. Virtually no one statement Sgarbi is not without shouting and swearing at someone's address.

Culture Minister Sandro Bondi (Sandro Bondi), Sgarbi-appointed curator of the Italian Pavilion, said his "deep knowledge in the field of cultural heritage of Italy." Sgarbi has already shared with the press a few ideas: "Maybe I will leave an empty hall, put there only directory that lists the addresses of Italian artists. Another idea is to dedicate (pavilon. - AI.) Some single artist - such as undeservedly forgotten master of the XV century Saturnino Gati, - thereby emphasizing "modernity" of his creativity. But my ideal pavilion looks like this: one single work of art - "Dead Christ" by Mantegna - next to a photograph of Che Guevara on his deathbed. "

"Unfortunately, we deserve Sgarbi, - says the distinguished curator Francesco Bonami (Francesco Bonami), known for his harsh criticism of the cultural policy of the Government Berlusconi. - To him, modern art - this is the same, that America for Bin Laden. Like bin Laden, he periodically unleashes furious tirades against the enemy. I must say that the appointment Sgarbi - it is almost suicidal attack on the honor and dignity of Italy. "

The next Venice Biennale in 2011.
