Description: Milano: Electa, 2011. 30cm., pbk., 210pp. illus., most in color. Exhibition held at Salone delle Scuderie in Pilotta, Parma. Italian text. Summary: Ever mindful, from the outset, of the work of Paul Cézanne, and the debate about Informal Art from Morlotti to Giacometti and Richier. Attilio Forgioli proposes a new image, which always focuses on a theme, a concrete event taken from real life, but which, gradually, becomes a symbolic space, a place for memory to gather. This important sequence of 26 paintings and about 100 oil pastels and drawings, all owned by the CSAC, enables us to reconstruct the artist's work, which was very important for the history of Italian art in the second half of the 20th century. His research was far removed from natural experience and also from the so-called Existential Realism of the late 1950s and early 1960s, an original kind of research which, in about 1965, proposed a new way of interpreting the real world.
