DUBLINERS (Exhibition & Book)

An exhibition of the work of Dublin-based Italian artist Mario Sughi (also known as nerosunero) opens to the public at the Italian Institute of Culture on Monday 21 March 2022.

Mario Sughi: Dubliners presents a group of 23 works — drawings and paintings — focusing, as the title suggests, on his relationship with the city and people of Dublin.

On the occasion of the exhibition the book Dubliners will also be launched. The book presents together Mario Sughi’s works and a collection of short stories by Irish author Mia Gallagher.

Dubliners is published by Marinoni Books (Milan)


When I draw or paint I never think I want to present with my work a historical testimony about the city of Dublin and its people.

Dublin, where I have lived and worked for more than thirty years now, is certainly one of the main sources of my visual imagination, and its streets, places, interiors, exteriors and its people have ended up occupying a large part of my work.

Now looking at this selection of works for the exhibition entitled ‘Dubliners’ at the Institute of Italian Culture, it seems to me that  my Dublin and its Dubliners are quite different from those generally “told” by other painters and illustrators or even writers.

It seems to me in comparison a Dublin that is very much mine, but perhaps, and for this reason also, no less authentic.
