L’America di Trump | Trump’s America

A photographic Spoon River Anthology of America today

I think it is the perfect visual illustration of Trump’s America, so well executed that it is almost harrowing. The ability to capture the soul of a nation, in photography, has always fascinated me as an idea. Renata Busettini and Max Ferrero have done it. They went there. They went all the way."

The surrealism of a Milanese artist

It is well known that freedom comes at a high price, even in art, which is a microcosm that only seems to be open, tolerant, and independent. Chiarini Boddi, albeit completely of his time, instead of adapting to stylistic shortcuts, has always conducted a dialogue with new avant-gardes and trends.

From the second futurism to spatialism: an Artist in search of the sign

“Truly, there are very few artists who merit the abused title of master. Because art is no longer artisanal work. It is sometimes a factory where creativity is mass produced, an assembly-chain pop product in the manner of Andy Warhol, then, and now in the works of Jeff Koons, but no longer a space for the transmission of techniques and knowledge.

Carlo Maria Mariani

The contemporary neo-classicist who defied the avantgarde

Carlo Maria Mariani has lived and worked in New York for decades: after a difficult beginning, when he used sacred art as a safety net, and the defensive years, he returned to classical themes, to what is “more real than real”, to hyperrealism and then to the final affirmation of a figurative style, drawwing inspiration from classical themes and rules.
