The joy of Franciscan friendship and thecommitment to live it in artistic research as well characterize in a decisive way the multifaceted production of Costantino Ruggeri (1925-2007), frate Franciscan and priest.
A singular artist active throughout the second half of the 20th century to the beginning of the 21st, he leaves a legacy-in paintings, sculptures, liturgical furnishings and fittings, stained glass windows and churches-that attests to his modern dialogue and skillful synthesis between contributions from the artistic avant-gardes of the 20th century and iconographic and symbolic innovations anchored in the Christian tradition.
