"For, that was the lesson, technical skills and knowledge in no way preclude dreaming, as some shortsighted minds think. On the contrary, they encourage its
development in that, by enriching the sensitive vocabulary and multiplying the passages between things, they sometimes shorten distances and sometimes increase the field of the visible, making it more mobile each time".
Florian Rodari, Exhibition catalogue p. 92

Background

Period:

1969-1984: The beauty of the world

With the independence gained for their children, Italo and Vincent also find their own: they leave graphic arts and silkscreen printing and blossom in the plastic arts. Vincent expresses his imagination mainly through oil painting and drawing, exclusively in his studio. Italo, always on the subject, pursues his contemplation of landscape, his wonder in front of nature, and goes from oil painting to washing through watercolour, tempera, charcoal, lead pencil or sanguine and is initiated to sculpture in wrought iron.
