The in-depth studies are by Italian and international scholars such as Carlos Basoaldo, also the book's editor, Angela Vettese, Claire Gilman, Gabriele Guercio, Jean François Chevrier and Suzanne Penn. The catalogue ends with a historic-artistic chronology. An exhibition providing the first in-depth account of the art and thought of one of our most important living artists, the product of collaboration between Maxxi in Rome and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
