Elio Marchegiani Born in Syracuse in Sicily, he spent his youth in Livorno. He made his debut in the ’50s, and his work is typically charged with irony. In the sixties, he began to create object/ works, deepening his research into the relationship between light, form and colour; his acquaintance with scientists led him to the concept of ‘technology as poetry’. In the ’70s he devoted himself to the “Grammature di colore” and on unconventional supports (plaster, blackboard, leather, parchment). Since the 80s the objet trouvé recovers a new centrality in its path. Marchegiani has over seventy personalities and the Venice Biennials of ’68, ’72 and ’86. His works are present in the most important museums and public spaces in Italy and abroad.
