The artworks are by Alberto Abate, Carlo Bertocci, Ubaldo Bartolini, Lorenzo Bonechi, four of the artists who have approached, though with significant stylistic differences, the character of “Pittura Colta” as it was formulated by Italo Mussa.
The exhibition catalogue contains critical texts by Giovanna Giordano (including a precious essay about Mussa) as well as two interviews conducted by Fabrizio Guerrini, a journalist and art expert, with the artists Carlo Bertocci and Ubaldo Bartolini.
