A plaque and a sculpture in Piazza Cavour in Bologna to remember Lucio Dalla.
The Municipality of Bologna has accepted, with a resolution, the donation of a statue depicting Lucio Dalla sitting on a bench in Piazza Cavour and has simultaneously authorized the laying of a commemorative plaque by the Bolognese artist on his birthplace.
The sculpture is the work of the artist Antonello Paladino and was donated to the Municipality of Bologna by Lino Zaccanti, cousin and heir of Lucio Dalla who, linked to the artist by a particular relationship of affection, in addition to sharing with the cousins the homage of the plaque also wanted to pay a personal tribute to the memory of Lucio Dalla and the city of Bologna and personally oversaw the installation of the work approved by the Superintendency.
Both interventions will be inaugurated in the presence of representatives of the Municipality of Bologna and the Emilia-Romagna Region on the occasion of the Festival for the celebration of the artist’s birthday, curated by the Lucio Dalla Foundation. The details of the inauguration will therefore be announced on 22 February on the occasion of the presentation of the Review.
