A fine copy., Cambridge University Press, 2003, Cologno Monzese: Silvia Editrice, 2003. A cura di Sanfo V. Spanish/english text. Cologno Monzese, 2003; br., pp. 128, ill. Exactly fifty years have passed since Mimmo Rotella invented the décollage, not only making his mark in the art world, but breathing life into an independent language that can no longer be ignored. When Rotella lived in Rome, in the early 1950s, the debate about informal art was at its most heated. Giuseppe Capogrossi and Alberto Burri were the two major poles of attraction-the former for his investigation of the primary element and the latter for his research into matter. Well, Rotella was certainly closer to Burri than to Capogrossi, but he was clearly aware that the path he would follow was quite different. After delving into all sorts of pictorial experiences, the artist from Calabria hit a moment of crisis and came through it only when he discovered décollage. Rotella described the moment himself: "I went through a crisis, after which, at the height of this period (at that time my atelier was near Piazza del Popolo, in Rome), I was struck by the city walls lined with ripped posters. I was literally spellbound, and even more so because at that time I was convinced that painting was finished, that something new had to be unearthed, something alive and modern. So in the evenings I began to tear the posters, ripping them down from the walls, and take them back to my studio, creating compositions and leaving them exactly the way they were, exactly the way I saw them. That is how the décollage came to be."1 This was 1953 and the images were exhibited for the first time in February 1954, thanks to a critic and philologist of great intuition, Emilio Villa, who died recently. When he introduced them in Rome, on the Tiber, where a floating gallery had been opened, he wrote without trepidation: "Whoever misses seeing the launching of this unique experiment on the currents of such an historic river, will certainly lose an important occasion." These brief historical notes appear fundamental to locating the figure of Rotella, especially now that China is preparing to celebrate him with a series of exhibitions of enormous prestige. Well, these shows are yet another opportunity for substantiating the extraordinary topicality of a pursuit that continues to offer surprises. Affiches lacérées, or décollages, or torn posters, or however one wishes to define them, are endowed with a specificity that renders them different to the other explosive gestures of the twentieth century: they will not grow old. Rotella, in fact, enjoys the merit of projecting his mark on the street, burrowing into reality in order to gather the existent. As the critic Cesare Vivaldi had already sensed, way back in 1957, Rotella went far beyond dadaism, past Schwitters, to "reach the collage as if it were a promised land, already pinpointed in his thought and imagination, but not yet brought to fruition."2 This allows him to operate non-stop in top gear, making futurist dreams come true, with their desire to impress dynamic form on space. Moreover, the tear does not exist as such, but depicts the element that triggers the start of a reaction from reality, which in this way will modify and transform. Rotella manipulates the universe's energy to create a virtuous circle, overflowing with consequences at physical and perceptual level. In fact, after he has intervened, nothing seems the way it did before, and..., Silvia Editrice, 2003, Paperback. New. Basil Spence(1907-1976) was one of Britain's most celebrated architects. This book explores his extraordinary career from the 1930s to the 1970s, focusing particularly on the post-war period. Initially known for his work on national exhibitions such as the Festival of Britain, Spence became a household name in 1951 when he won the competition to design a new cathedral for Coventry. He worked on an unusually wide range of projects from housing in Glasgow's Gorbals to the University of Sussex and the British Embassy in Rome. Central to his work was a sensitivity towards materials and a commitment to working with artists. Spence's work is discussed here in a series of essays introduced by a personal memoir especially written by the architect's close family., Krannert Art Museum and Kinkead Pavilion, University of Illinois at Urba, 1994. 34 pp., Paperback, ex library, else text clean and binding tight, Krannert Art Museum and Kinkead Pavilion, University of Illinois at Urba, 1994, Cairo / New York: The American University in Cairo Press, 2004. 80p., softbound, coated paperstock with profuse color site and exhibit photography, 11x7.8 inch colorphoto wraps, clean and sound, a fine copy., The American University in Cairo Press, 2004, New York: Institute of Fine Arts/New York University, 1966. stiff paper wrappers.
