Historical Context of Italy
The classical period of the Romans has exerted a consequential influence on the cultural and intellectual evolution of Italy, contributing to the uniqueness of the country and its immense artistic legacy. Italy is also the country that epitomizes the Renaissance, “Riniscita” in its original language, which signifies “rebirth”. From the early 1400s, the Renaissance has been a fervent period of cultural and political awakenings, engendering revivals in art, architecture, music, poetry and philosophy. Although greatly tormented by the fascism of Mussolini in the modern and contemporary era, Italy has never lost its place as one of the most fundamental artistic centres, home to pioneering movements such as Futurism and Arte Povera, as well as the expressive painting of the Transavanguardia and the Minimalism related to the Zero Movement. Some highly eminent Italian artists from the twentieth and twenty first centuries include Giorgio Di Chirico, Giacomo Balla, Giorgio Morandi, Alberto Giacometti, Lucio Fontana, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Francesco Clemente and Mimmo Paladino.
Further Biographical Context for Luigi Veronesi
Luigi Veronesi was born in 1908 and was primarily inspired by the 1920s. Significant artistic developments that had been established in the earlier part of the 20th century continued to be matured during the 1920s and 1930s. At this time the careers of many influential and pioneering artists began to blossom, yet at the same time there was an atmosphere of consideration and sombreness following the horrors of the First World War. Significant shifts in politics were happening worldwide, and Marxism took a strong hold as an ideology amongst artist groups and communities. Due to its cultural significance, Surrealism spread as an philosophy on an international scale, and became the leading theme of the pictorial arts in the 1920s. The Bauhaus movement developed during this time and focused on a unification of all modes of art, working towards the idea of the ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’. The liberal politics of the Weimar Republic in Germany enabled this movement to blossom and grow and develop further.
