A first study on the last fifty years of italian art. International authors take a fresh look at the field and raise the question of whether, and to what extent, a contemporary school of italian art exists.
This book by Gabriele Guercio and Anna Mattirolo hopes to become a point of reference on the study of contemporary Italian art through the presentation of a range of new material on the subject.
The scope of the volume covers a period of approximately 50 years, from the 1960s to the present and embraces a wide range of ideas, debates, approaches and points of view. Although it deals with a specific period it by no means aims at a progressive reconstruction of trends, artistic groups and works. On the contrary, the number of different contributions produces a kaleidoscope effect of overlapping accounts which become the keynote of the whole volume.
