Luigi Ballerini, Luca Cerizza and Paola Nicolin will speak, and the curator will be present.The volume GASTONE NOVELLI. Scritti ’43 – ’68, published by NERO, collects the entire corpus of Gastone Novelli's writings written between 1943 and 1968, both those that have remained unpublished to date, and those already published by Achille Perilli in 1976 in a monographic issue of the magazine Grammatica.
A collection of texts that crosses the history of artistic and political Italy in the second half of the Twentieth Century and at the same time offers a story without filters of the life of this figure, who was not only a painter and artist, but also a teacher, a fervent polemicist, publisher, writer and political activist.
The letters and stories from the prison, the youth political manifesto of the Movimento Confederale europeo, the composition courses held in Brazil and in Rome, the theoretical texts for the magazines L’Esperienza moderna and Grammatica, his decisive interventions on the Biennial of San Paolo of Brazil , on the Verucchio Convention, on the Rome Quadrennial and on the Venice Biennale, those on Surrealism and the politics of the PSI, and much more.
