Alighiero Boetti by Serena Mabilia
“Everything attracted the curiosity of Alighiero, who knew he could make art out of anything.” The sentiment is at the heart of this illustrated children’s book about the Italian conceptual artist Alighiero Boetti (1940–1990). A proponent of the Arte Povera movement until the early 1970s, Boetti later moved to Rome and began playing with the image of his dual persona by presenting opposing elements in his work. The book narrates his story, from his birth in Turin, early artistic inspirations, and use of materials, to his conceptual evolution and various approaches. Eloisa Guarracino provides a light and informative story to accompany the colourful illustrations by Serena Mabilia.
