AZIMUT/H., Continuità e nuovo

In a post-war period marked by great experimentations, great masters and international comparison, emerges the cultural and expressive centrality of Azimut, a gallery and a magazine founded in 1959 by Piero Manzoni and Enrico Castellani. Diversified from spelling, Azimut (the gallery) and “Azimuth” (the magazine) formalize a new aesthetic concept also favored by the intense relationship developed with some of the major protagonists of the Italian and international linguistic and theoretical investigation of those years. This book is dedicated to the Italian protagonists of this generation, and to the European and American internationality of this experience.
