In 1973 Studio la Città held a group show called Iononrappresentonullaiodipingo – exhibiting works by Carlo Battaglia together with others by Rodolfo Aricò, Giorgio Griffa, and Claudio Verna – which was one of the first exhibitions of so-called Analytical Painting. It was curated by Maurizio Fagiolo dell’Arco who today, after forty-two years, looks back at that period, one that is now undergoing a genuine critical and financial rediscovery, by exhibiting a series of works by artists from the time. This is a confirmation of a choice made then that can now be proposed once more with the double aim of verifying the historical validity it had then, and the present value of an artistic trend that has still to be evaluated in all its critical and historical aspects.
