Catalogue of the exhibition held at Tornabuoni Arts in London dedicated to the relationship between architects and artists from post-War Italy.
This is the idea of “Utopia”: highlighting this common writing, this sharing of aspirations peculiar to this blessed period of creation of post-fascist Italy in which art, architecture and design have ceaselessly responded to each other in the same spirit of creative effervescence and philosophical and political questioning.
Lucio Fontana, Carlo Mollino, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Andrea Branzi and also Gino Sarfatti, Paolo Scheggi, Carlo Scarpa and Dadamaino, Enrico Castellani and Nanda Vigo, Michele De Lucchi and Alberto Burri: so many artists and works that mirror each other, and question the same vision of time, the same concern for the place of man in the world, the same relationship with the profane and the sacred.
There was a before and an after, with the birth of movements such as Arte Povera, the Radical movement or Alchimia… that blossomed by expanding artistic paradigms.
