Copertina: Aperçues.
Aperçues è la parola chiave che intitola la pubblicazione, un progetto d’artista concepito da Nina Carini, esponente della giovane generazione artistica italiana, per documentare la propria ricerca. Tratta dall’omonimo libro di Georges Didi-Huberman, Aperçues apre alla dimensione delle immagini intraviste, a ciò che appare e velocemente scompare, lasciando in realtà tracce e frammenti di emozioni e pensieri.

Questo libro presenta...

Carlo Maria Mariani

Complete works

The contemporary neo-classicist who defied the avantgarde

Carlo Maria Mariani has lived and worked in New York for decades: after a difficult beginning, after initially working on sacred art in the 1960s, he returned to classical themes in the 1970s, 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.

Pasolini at Matera, as told by an exhibition

Copertina: Giorgio Chiarini Boddi.
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.
