For the centennial of the birth of Primo Levi, GAM Turin, in collaboration with the International Primo Levi Studies Center, showcases for the first time in Italy, at the Wunderkammer, an important selection of works in copper wire made by the illustrious writer and intellectual, curated by Fabio Levi and Guido Vaglio, with exhibition design by Gianfranco Cavaglià and the assistance of Anna Rita Bertorello.

These objects are highly intimate and domestic, intended for the writer’s home or as gifts for close friends: they do not have a specific date (roughly 1955/1975) or title given by the artist himself. The material used is generally copper wire: his work as a chemist specialized in enameled electrical conductors gave him access to large quantities of scraps and test materials. In the show these objects are treated thusly: not as works of art, but as products of Levi’s fantasy and manual skill: a game, in the broadest and most positive sense of the word.
