Biography:Remo Brindisi (Rome, 1918 - Lido di Spina, 1996) spent his time in the artistic environment since he was a child, first at the Art School in Penne, where his father taught sculpture, then he entered the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome. He finished his studies in Urbino at the Art Institute for the Illustration of Books. He fought with the Italian army during World War II and moved initially to Florence, where he got in touch with the artists from that time (Carena, Soffici and Rosai), and then in Venice where he began an important partnership with the gallerist Carlo Cardazzo and participated in all the Biennials. His painting is strongly linked to expressionism, with informal tendencies, and steeped in social and political purposes. The recurring subjects are motherhood, young shepherds, opponents and the “Venezie”, represented as nightmares, the result of an analysis of the suffering caused by the traumatic events of war, horror and guilt. The years in Milan (since 1947) are characterised by a Cubist flattening, the result of the controversy between realists and abstractionists and its integration in the “Linea” group. The covered themes are evidence of the collective suffering, taking on an epic nature. The two series created by Brindisi are famous: “La via Crucis” (1956-1957) and “Storia del Fascismo” (1957-1962). In 1970 he founded the “Museo Alternativo” in Lido di Spina, where he collected works by contemporary Italian and foreign artists. He was appointed president of the Milan Triennial and he was awarded the gold medal of the state education for cultural merits. Remo Brindisi is considered by critics one of the greatest Italian artists of the twentieth century. 22811279
