Piero Cattaneo. Notes of an artist of his era, 2001–2002
In this video interview, the last one given by the artist, Cattaneo goes back to the beginning of his career: his tactile and stylistic research of the late Forties and early Fifties; the daring and ongoing experimentation that led him to liberation from a cumbersome tradition, without fully rejecting it but going back to rediscover its origins. Through this transition, this moment of artistic research, the artist devised his own unique language, in which our past and our present are united on an iconographic level in the intent to write a new human history.
