With this publication the Foundation FrateSolepays tribute to its founder, a great figure of artist, FrateFranciscan and priest who, in over sixty years of fervent activity, has dedicated himself with commitment and passion to contemporary sacred art in its many forms, through an artistic research characterized by the joy of the Franciscan spirit.
A unique artist active throughout the second half of the 20th century until the beginning of the 21st century, he left a legacy - in paintings, sculptures, liturgical furnishings and furnishings, stained-glass windows and churches - that attests to his modern dialogue and skilful synthesis between the contributions of the artistic avant-gardes of the 20th century and iconographic and symbolic innovations anchored in the Christian tradition.
This book aims to offer a first historicization, to which they have chorally contributed: Giorgio Azzoni, Carlo Cavallari, Maria Antonietta Crippa, Mario Favretto, Luigi Leoni, Roberta Manara, Massimo Ravazzano, Carmen Romagnano, Chiara Rovati, Nicoletta Scherillo, Andrea Vaccari, Virtus Zallot, Ferdinando Zanzottera.
