LUNGO GLI ANNI
It was 1963 when Concetto Pozzati first showed one of his works at Galleria de’ Foscherari: a vast painting titled Grande spettacolo ortogonale, created “live” in the gallery space over the course of three days and three nights, alongside Pirro Cuniberti and Luciano De Vita. With a common aim, the three men had taken on the same challenge: to work side by side, like the artists who painted the frescos of yore, on a project that was both personal and collective.a.
That show was followed up the next year, at de’ Foscherari, by the artist’s first solo exhibition. It marked the beginning of a partnership that lasted more than fifty years, until Pozzati’s death, and gradually became indissoluble: shared visions, joint enthusiasms, reciprocal loyalty. A relationship based on almost daily interaction, built up through a thousand fruitful conversations—exchanging ideas, swapping news, and diligently weaving fresh intellectual ties.
