Carla Vasio Carla Vasio


Carla Vasio places us directly among the protagonists of the new cultural scene of the second half of the 20th century, and the winds of change that animated it. Writers and poets of Gruppo 63, the experimental literary movement that had a deep impact on Italian literature from the Sixties on and now celebrating its 50th anniversary; musicians of Nuova Consonanza, with the unforgettable voices of Michiko Hirayama and Cathy Berberian; from the discovery of Oriental wisdom and Krishnamurti to the Jungian school of Ernst Bernhard; from the young Formal painters to Kounellis, Schifano and Turcato; from the theatre of Lele Luzzatti to the new art galleries right up to the Biennales. Vasio recalls with humour and intimate knowledge encounters and conversations; as we are drawn in to homes, studios, printers’ workshops and art galleries we are given a rare chance to savour the sense of adventure that characterized the times. A live portrait of an Italy open to the world of art, and of an art whose language is daring, lively and experimental.
